Nicolas Maduro has declared a state of emergency in the midst of the economic crisis that the state is facing. Jose Manuel Gonzalez, a doctor, thinks that the emergency actions are supposed to last for 60 days. Some leaders in the United States are fearful that the state is on the verge of a meltdown that it won’t be able to get out of, but Maduro claims that he is trying to protect his people. There is a shortage with food and medicine. Some want Maduro to be taken out of office while others want to give him a chance to try to change things in the state. One things that is certain says Gonzalez is that there isn’t a lot of time left to make a difference in the lives of the people who live there as basic needs are going unmet.
