Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Guayaquil is crazy, I’m very grateful I’m not working there anymore. They have a bunch of problems, they didn’t react in time, no social distancing, practically no health system (a doctor’s appointment there, just a checkup, set me back $80), the place is fantastically corrupt and as Charles mention...

Re: PAY YOUR CAR TAX NOW, or your insurance is void, THE GOVERNMENT SCREWED-UP!!!!!

I thought the university would be ground zero in that town. Suspended apparently link here https://www.austral.edu.ar/continuidadacademica.pdf This is the university that got Stephen Hawking to travel to the other end of the world, they’re really not so thick as to start the academic year right now.

Re: PAY YOUR CAR TAX NOW, or your insurance is void, THE GOVERNMENT SCREWED-UP!!!!!

Ok so to put things bluntly, every municipal webpage will be down in Chile tomorrow? And there will be a coronavirus party in front of every town hall. It’s just more random thrashing around from el Pillo Piñera & Co. By the way, this is a bit off topic on this thread but you can expect a cluster of...

Re: PAY YOUR CAR TAX NOW, or your insurance is void, THE GOVERNMENT SCREWED-UP!!!!!

correction, the municipality of frutillar does have an online site, it was just crashed from the sudden traffic. Aha I didn’t realise online payment could be different in every municipality. My son paid online last week, the car is in Valdivia, the permiso de circulación is in the name of some prev...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I've been trying to figure out why Singapore and Taiwan have such low death and case rates when they were one of the earliest clusters outside of China. Yet even chile has far surpassed Taiwan. Why? This appears to be the answer. Mask wearing culture https://www.maskssavelives.org Perhaps the most ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Argentina is going to blowup. they went from only so far being able to test 100 people per day, to 200 now. supposedly they are suppose to get the provinces the ability to test this week. but currently it sounds like it is taking two to three days to get a test completed, if they are testing at all...

Re: Quarentines and fines

looks like they are getting ready to announce a total lockdown of the eastern part of Santiago shortly. https://www.emol.com/noticias/Nacional/2020/03/25/980944/Gobierno-prepara-cuarentena-obligatoria-comunas.html Anyone transferring money by SWIFT to Chile needs to take notice, given that this is ...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

It is just my wife and me. we had told her that as soon as we have a confirmed case in frutillar, she could stay home. we would keep on paying her. she is in her late 50's. we did not want her ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

fon't get me wrong, as much as I bitch about Argentina and Argentinians, I actually like Argentina. I actually do hope they get their shit together someday. under the current circumstances, what I am worried about with Argentina is all the political hot air they been blowing up each others rears fo...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Argentina is still in the middle of a default, I understand negotiations are to continue tomorrow. But default is an interesting concept in a world where nobody is talking to anyone, trade can be randomly stopped, and everyone is dying. Except... where have people stopped dying? China. Who buys most...
