Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Here in Valpo, when entering a shop or a supermarket, you are forced to use liquid hand sanitiser. This is not always clear whether this is alcohol based or ammonium based. Actually, for sure, I smelled alcohol only once. Here is the today's news from Viña: "...Fourteen officials from the Sapu de Gó...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Regardless of what they elect to do, I believe that people must know where, when and how they can legally accept or refuse health care. They must know whether or not any person may be transported to a health care facility under medical direction.
