Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Yeah, Alejandro Guillier said it was a "provocation". As if there are areas in Chile that the President of Chile is prohibited from visiting. In the midst of the epidemic, when at least some degree of opposition support would be appropriate, they continue with the trench warfare. Given up following ...

That's just to do with delaying an increase in special electricity pricing when they screw you in winter when you use more electricity,
Yup, you are right, I should have read more carefully.
Not a bad thing.

Thanks! I wondered what the date of the time change for winter would be.
I'm not so sure about that.....

Re: Building house in Chile the "gringo" way

Sporadically follow this thread. Since this is evidently being built to a high standard, would just add a comment. Add a small central wiring closet and run plenty of data cables back to it from all over. Just Google "Smart House Wiring" The sort of people who are willing to pay for decent construct...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Mine was cancelled on the 16th, the last to be cancelled. They were willing to go ahead but the risk to me was high as I was going to need ICU after the op. Like many I now am hoping that my condition does not worsen until I can eventually get the operation. When I see people complaining they can't...

Re: The Day After

Wow! What part of Chile was this poster seen in? Commies sure won't let a crisis go to waste pushing their class warefare. Hold on Chile, you have now entered the twilight zone! Saw it pasted on our local supermarket door in La Serena today. Its illustrative of notions that are quite common round h...

Re: Curfew nation wide 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The whole point of the curfews, quarantine and isolation is to reduce the speed of propagation to prevent medical care from being overwhelmed, its not to prevent contagion which is virtually impossible in the long term.

As to the restrictions, live with them, you don't have much choice.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

It is difficult to compare countries. Different demographics, different culture, different economy, different government competence, different attitude of people towards government. Countries have different problems and different solutions, even when confronted with the same disease. The Northern h...
