A hospital ship arrived on Wednesday, April 17, in the Nabasanuka community of Delta Amacuro to treat potential new cases of a rare disease that has claimed the lives of 13 Warao indigenous people, most of them children.

This was confirmed on social networks by the priest Andrés García, belonging to the religious congregation Misioneros de la Consolata, who added that a commission formed by the vice minister of Health and some epidemiological doctors also arrived in Tucupita in order to make a diagnosis and power stop this pathology.

The governor of the Delta Amacuro state, Lizeta Hernández, promised the arrival of the hospital ship on April 15 during a press conference.

The regional leader assured that the deaths of Warao children in the Sakoinoko, Yorinanoko and Mukoboina communities of the Delta Amacuro state, which began to be recorded in the first week of April of this year, would have been controlled after the intervention of several commissions.

“Thank God we have recorded three consecutive days without deaths,” said the governor, who added that the treatments applied have shown effectiveness.

He clarified that they still do not know what pathology it is, so several samples have been sent to laboratories in the city of Caracas.

According to reports from the chief of the Nabasanuka community, Enrique Moraleda, the waraos had died after presenting similar symptoms, such as fever, which progresses with headache, seizures and severe pain in the neck.

The deaths occurred specifically in the Sakoinoko, Yorinanoko and Mukoboina communities.
