100% of electricity back on in Venezuela


Caracas, March 14 (RHC)-- Venezuela resumed work activities on Thursday after the restitution of 100 percent of the electricity system in the country, said the Vice President of Communication, Jorge Rodríguez.

"Problems remain with transformers that have been sabotaged, as in Baruta and El Hatillo on Sunday; the service has been restored in 60 percent of those areas," explained the head of communications, adding that school activities are suspended for another 24 hours.

The restitution of drinking water service has been made in 80 percent throughout the national territory.  The distribution of this service was affected by the cyber attack to the electrical system, due to the fact that it is mostly executed by pumping.

And on Saturday and Sunday, military exercises will resume in a second stage for the protection of the people.  This second stage is being called Ana Karina Rote.

Venezuela experienced last Thursday a cyberattack to its electrical system, which according to the national government was executed from the United States and with the involvement of the government of that country.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro ordered the creation of a commission to investigate the events, which he considers an act of terrorism against the Venezuelan people.  He has also requested the support of international experts for research.
