Infant mortality in Venezuela has soared by roughly 50% during the prolonged political crisis in the country.

She warned that 40% of medical staff had left the country and said hospital stocks of medicine had dwindled to 20% of the required level.

Please appoint Bernie Sanders as Special Ambassador to Venezuela and Send him there to show them how Socialism is supposed to work.
I'm opposed to infant mortality in Venezuela.
I’m sure non-infant mortality has skyrocketed, too.
We will send the applauding idiots from NY who agree with infant deaths especially when they’re alive
May be stable with the sheer numbers of Venezuelans fleeing.
There’s going to be an IQ drain on society for some time to come as the best, brightest, most educated and business savvy, have already fled. Those left behind are going to have a rough go at rebuilding when the institutional knowledge has left the country.
It’s official (again)...socialism kills.
A friend of mine makes a couple of trips to Venezuela a year to bring shoes, toilet paper, and other niceties of life to his dad who still lives there. Awful conditions there.
That business started with Hugo Chavez nationalized all the oil companies and their refineries. The talent left, the new owners didn’t know crap about maintenance and slowly but surely the oil production slowed to a crawl. The petrodollars were Chavez’s cash cow.
Infant mortality skyrockets when Molochians are in power.
100% would be double. Boston U.?
Please appoint Bernie Sanders as Special Ambassador to Venezuela and Send him there to show them how Socialism is supposed to work.”
I wouldnt mind if mortality among communists went sky high.
Is PP now international?
Why? Are they doing post-birth abortions, like NY, and NC?
It’s a feature not a bug for the baby killers.
