EL COURIER DEL ORINOCO # 9

La pandemia global de Covid-19 sigue su avance indetenible, y ahora le toca a los Estados Unidos hacer frente a un número masivo de contagios.
El presidente Trump ajusta su estrategia e invoca poderes excepcionales reservados a períodos de guerra, mientras que el Senado de ese país aprueba el mayor paquete de auxilio económico en la historia estadounidense. No es para menos, una dura recesión y el incremento histórico del desempleo parecen inevitables.
Mientras tanto, en Venezuela, tras la negativa del FMI de desbloquear los fondos de ayuda solicitados por el gobierno, voces se alzan para exigir el levantamiento temporal, por motivos humanitarios, de las sanciones impuestas por Estados Unidos. A lo cual el gobierno de Trump responde… imputando a Maduro y a otros dignatarios venezolanos por “narco-terrorismo”.
Una semana tan acontecida, que casi nos hizo olvidar que la lucha por la candidatura presidencial demócrata entre Joe Biden y Bernie Sanders sigue su curso.
