"Vice-President Delcy Rodriguez leads the presidential commission against COVID-19. The inhuman and reckless gesture is that Twitter restricts @DrodriguezVen and @ViceVenezuela accounts, which are the sources of information necessary for the people of Venezuela in these unforeseen circumstances," Arreaza said on Twitter.
