The caption reads,
“So the world knows: In our neonatal units at the Dr Domingo Guzman Lander hospital they are being kept in cardboard boxes due to a lack of incubators. 20 Sept”
The images are now being investigated, with Venezuelan Social Security Institute President Carlos Rotondaro responding to the allegations with images of incubators in a hospital.
