Chavez worsened by respiratory failure

After two months of undergoing an operation to eradicate the Cancer , Hugo Chavez , president of Venezuela, reappears with respiratory insufficiency that has impacted his health since last year, so he has to breathe through a tracheal cannula, which makes speech difficult, according to newspaper information
