MIAMI (AP) — A raucous beach party thrown by several children of Venezuela’s ruling elite has led to a cluster of coronavirus cases.

It's also shown how the revelry hasn't stopped for the wealthy amid a widening pandemic in a country already gripped by crisis.

The elites took private planes to a Caribbean island and brought in prostitutes from Europe while Venezuela went on lockdown last month.

Anger has been deepening in the world's most unequal region, where jet-setting elites have imported the virus to Latin America but the poor are bearing the brunt.
