Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

I've been walking instead of taking colectivos or micros just to avoid particular cantagion zones. But it is already out there, we will all be exposed to it in time no matter what precautions, keep your immune system strong, don't engage in microbial concentrating dangerous activities and live your...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

after a series of bugs circulating in our circle this year, as soon as we all started hiding we started getting better. no planes. no kids in school. not interacting with anyone outside our campo, just the family. I'm trying to avoid buses, because I think that's where I pick up most bugs here. I"m...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

Plus, all the vitamin C and other supplements and advice I passed on helped. I used to get sick back in Michigan, every time the seasons were changing. But I discovered that about a tablespoon of cinnamon each day prevented it. So I'm doing that now, along with some old zinc supplements, and old mu...

Re: Quarentines and fines

I'm getting a lot of stuff by email about the virus, that's only in an image (not text). So it can't be easily translated with something like google. I just hope it's not too important:)

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

plenty of those going around and flue season is just setting in. I just got over one that took about a month to shake. pretty much just a regular old cold. Thanks, that helps. I don't want to freak out too much over a typical cold:) According to what I was reading last night, you probably had 2 or ...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

Does anyone know of any "normal" viruses, colds, etc. that are currently going around in Chile? I'm trying to decide now, how much to panic later, if I start getting sick.

Re: Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado?

Dude, setup a Cuenta de Ahorros with BE and if need be, store excess of CuentaRUT limits in that account. A few here have been doing that for quite a while. Then everything is just done electronically no virus-laden cash needed just like TPTB want! I plan to set up another account eventually, but i...

Re: Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado?

Servipag is a joint venture owned by BCI and Banco de Chile, so you can deposit there at accounts from either bank, as well as those associated with them (BCI Nova, Banco Edwards etc). Do you know if you can deposit into someone else's account? I might need to do that soon, because my CuentaRUT's m...

Re: Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado?

I could be wrong, but one cannot deposit into any sort of a bank account at ServiPag: neither someone else's, nor your own, regardless of the bank. I remember going there to pay my VTR bill a long time ago, and they had a bunch of banks listed on their wall (just not the one I needed). And I though...

Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado?

Can you deposit cash into someone else's Banco de Chile account at a Servipag branch? I seem to remember it being possible, but that was a long time ago. And what about ServiEstado? Or does that only work with Banco Estado accounts? Thanks.

Re: Quarentines and fines

Thanks, I hope that motivates people to start being more careful when they're sick. It's getting more dangerous to ride the bus:(
