Venezuela received 900.000 doses of one of the Cuban vaccines for COVID-19 on Sunday, and expects a total of 15 million doses, said President Nicolas Maduro, although the vaccine has not yet been approved by the World Health Organization (WHO). .

"Today, 900.000 Abdala have arrived in Venezuela," said President Maduro.

The development follows the president's announcement that the educational institutions will reopen with a physical presence at all levels from October 25th.

He cited the fact that the country will receive "no less than 15 million doses to vaccinate five million compatriots", as Abdallah is given in three doses.

Venezuela initially relied on the immunization program for COVID-19 in the Russian vaccine Sputnik V and the Chinese pharmacopoeia Sinopharm, which are given in two doses.

In July, the government began exploiting Abdallah, despite reservations and criticism from doctors.

On September 7, it received a first home of vaccines through the mechanism COVAX WHO aims to ensure fair access to poor and middle-income countries. It was 700.000 doses of the Chinese Sinovac vaccine. Caracas is expected to receive around 12 million installments.

Mr Maduro assured yesterday that within days, Venezuela "will reach 50% of the age-eligible population to be vaccinated after receiving two doses". His government aims to vaccinate 70% of the population of some 30 million.

However, according to the Pan-American Health Organization (WHO), the department of the WHO that is responsible for America, Venezuela has so far given two doses to 5,9 million people.

Caracas reports about 5.000 deaths due to COVID-19, a number greatly underestimated in reality according to non-governmental organizations such as Human Rights Watch (HRW), the opposition and medical sources.

The president of Venezuela, as the number of SARS-CoV-2 cases has increased in recent weeks, has warned against the threatened "third wave". The second wave, which struck the country in March, caused huge problems in hospitals and private clinics.
