Nurse claims that Chávez walked into the hospital
Dubraska Mora told state-run TV channel VTV that the Head of State neither used a wheelchair nor he has on tubes
In an interview with state-run TV channel VTV, Mora said that the Head of State "is strong" and did not use a wheelchair. "People of Venezuela, comrades, fellow countrymen: Our President walked in, strong, courageous, full of stamina, as usual in him (...) He would not come neither on a trolley nor on tubes; he would not come with any invasive process. Our president is strong to keep on commanding as he only knows to do it. People, be confident! We have a president for long time!"
The last medical report supplied by Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas referred that President Chávez was breathing through a tracheal cannula because of certain respiratory distress.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
