Don Joel Oviedo’s brother, the man who weeks ago gained public notoriety after placing a desperate order for medicines, finally defeated COVID-19 and left intensive care.

Adalberto Oviedo, who had been fighting a tough battle against the new coronavirus at the Villarrica Regional Hospital, finally left the intensive care room this afternoon.

The information was confirmed by his brother, Joel Oviedo, who in an interview with Radio Ñandutí celebrated this achievement after several weeks of concern and uncertainty.

After leaving the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the patient was referred to a normal ward to complete his recovery process for approximately three more days.

« Ha’e osê calm and without problems, » Don Joel told the radio station.

He himself pointed out that for now they are not needing anything specific but in the same way they will continue to wait to see what happens during the next few days.

As he mentioned, he will stop working for a few days to take a short break, this in view of the fact that his brother’s health status improved and he can now take a break.

It should be remembered that a few weeks ago Don Joel Oviedo became publicly notorious after making a desperate request for medicines for his brother, who at that time was going through a difficult situation when he was hospitalized for COVID-19 in the intensive therapy of the Villarrica Regional Hospital .

The situation occurred in coincidence with an official visit by President Mario Abdo Benítez and the Minister of Health, Julio Mazzoleni, who did not get to speak personally with the man. When asked about the lack of supplies, the head of state replied: « I am not a doctor, moopio che aikuaapata. »

After the controversy that was generated as a result of this case, arrangements were finally made so that Don Joel can receive the blisters he was urgently needing for his brother.

Some 35 health workers were vaccinated against COVID-19 this Monday, on the first day of immunization in the country. Sputnik V applications will continue throughout the week.

“We had a very successful day. 35 officials from the UTI Pavilion and the Integrated IPS have been immunized, ”commented Lic. Luz Olivera, director of the Expanded Immunization Program (PAI) in Itapúa, in an interview with the journalist Rocío Gómez, correspondent for Grupo Nación.

The licensee also pointed out that the first day of immunization ended with no reports of adverse reactions or loss of dose.

It is expected that this Friday will be completed with the first batch of 200 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine that were sent to the department of Itapúa.

Vaccinations in the department of Itapúa are carried out at the Encarnación Regional Hospital.

Dr. Oscar Bottger, director of intensive care at the IPS Encarnación Integrated Respiratory Hospital, was the first to be vaccinated on a voluntary basis.

The National Commission for Refugees (CONARE) of Argentina granted political refuge to the relatives of Carmen Villalba, one of the main leaders of the EPP and who is currently being held in the Buen Pastor prison.

Through a document dated today, the CONARE resolution regarding the request of Carmen Villalba’s family was announced.

According to the text, the aforementioned commission decided to grant the status of political refugees to Myrian Viviana Villalba Ayala, Alexandra Monserrat Villalba Ayala, Daniela Esperanza Meza Villalba, Mariana de Jesús Ayala López, María Rosa Villalba Ayala and Magna Esmeralda Meza Villalba.

The file mentions that the applicant, Myrian Villalba (Carmen’s sister and mother of one of the girls killed months ago during a confrontation in Concepción), has Paraguayan nationality but has been living in the neighboring country for several years, being able to thereby access an Argentine DNI.

The information was confirmed by the Argentine Bar Association on its Facebook account. This union helped the family of the EPP leader to manage the rigorous procedures to obtain this new status.

As they explain in their post, the political refuge prevents any judicial persecution of Paraguay and thunders any extradition attempt.

The people who are part of this list must appear before the National Directorate of Migration or one of its offices for the purposes of processing their immigration regularization, providing all the necessary documentation, adds the note.

It should be remembered that already in September of last year, Myrian Villalba had made a request for political refuge to Argentina for herself and her family, alleging an alleged “persecution” by the Paraguayan government. She had also said that she feared for her life and that of the children she is currently raising.
