Venezuela’s socialist regime -responsible for the deaths of countless citizens through police oppression, starvation, and mishandling of the economy- earned a seat on the United Nation’s Human Rights Council Thursday.

“A UN General Assembly meeting in Geneva saw the Latin American country elected to one of 14 new seats on the 47-member body,” reports the BBC.

“More than 50 countries no longer recognise Mr Maduro as the country’s legitimate leader. The US and most governments in Latin America – as well as EU states like France, Germany, Spain and the UK – back opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the interim president,” adds the website.

More and more Venezuelans are seeking out “traditional” or “spiritual” healers to treat modern medical conditions as hospitals rapidly run-out of life-saving supplies across the socialist country.

“With Venezuela’s chronic medicine shortages and hyperinflation, more and more people are turning to alternative medicine to treat common ailments in the crisis-wracked South American country,” reports Yahoo News.

“We go to the hospital and there’s nothing there. They don’t have medicines, or they’re too expensive, what are we to do?” said Rosa Saez, 77.

“Rosales’ clinic is muggy with the smell of tobacco. A crucifix suspended from a chain around his neck, he practices a seeming mixture of smoke-blowing shamanism, plant-based medicine and mainstream religion,” adds the website.

The hyper-inflation destroying Venezuela’s already-failing economy reached unprecedented levels earlier this year; prompting the government to issue new 50,000 Bolivar bank notes -worth about $8 in the United States.

“Venezuela is releasing new banknotes for the second time in less than a year, the central bank said on Wednesday, after hyperinflation eroded the effects of an August 2018 monetary overhaul meant to improve availability of cash,” writes the Guardian.

“Banknotes of 10,000, 20,000 and 50,000 bolívar denominations will begin circulating on Thursday to ‘make the payment system more efficient and facilitate commercial transactions, the central bank said in statement,” adds the report.
