Chavez insisted on return to ease tensions. He was transferred to Caracas and placed in Carlos Arvelo military hospital. The recuperation is on, but regular state of health reports are not enough to placate the opposition. They want to see with their own eyes the president is really alive and able to adequately react to reality. In fact it means the opposition is intent to convert the territory around the hospital into an epicenter of confrontation with the authorities. Diosdado Cabello, the President of National Assembly, warned against such actions threatening to come with a rapid and resolute response.March 5:
The Chavez recuperation is a hard and slow process. That’s why his next of kin are against making public any photos showing the national leader being helpless. Operations and chemotherapy couldn’t’t go without leaving a trace. Right now Chavez cannot address the people by radio because of breath problems, being intubated he cannot freely speak. A mixed team of medical specialists from Cuba and Venezuela do their best to make him rest.
