Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

This is just mind blowing piece of corruption, or possibly worse, a mind blowing piece of incompetence, on the part of the chilean ISP (chilean FDA). https://www.emol.com/noticias/Nacional/2021/01/21/1009940/Ensayo-Sinovac-Chile-muy-segura.html Science by press release.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

It appears of the 20 cases of the U.K. varrient detected in Chile so far, one case has been detected that has no apparent link to foreign travel. https://www.emol.com/noticias/Nacional/2021/01/16/1009599/Minsal-20-casos-variante-britanica.html That sucker is in circulation in Chile.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

seems the oxford vaccine 90% efficiency was found in the timing between first and second dose. Not the size of the dosing. The initial group that got the half dose then full dose had a over 90% efficiency not because of the dose, but because they tended to get the second dose later. When they looke...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Sinovac ..... Even allowing for statistical uncertainties, that is considerably below the greater than 90% efficacies of three other already authorized COVID-19 vaccines. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2021/01/third-time-s-charm-brazil-scales-back-efficacy-claims-covid-19-vaccine-china It does not...

Re: Ley Garantias De La Niñez

In a conversation with friends, they brought up this law and they were deeply worried about it. Does anybody know anything about it, concerns? It seems that the short answer to your question is that it does not exist yet. From what I have read it seems that many have been asking for those legal "Ga...

Re: Ley Garantias De La Niñez

I had just read this a couple of days ago. And that is as much as I know about this topic. Niñas, niños y adolescentes se merecen mucho más Así las cosas, resulta paradójico que, habida cuenta del contexto histórico actual, se dé el ‘vamos’ a la creación de un nuevo Servicio, dotándolo de escasas he...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

data shows that it is almost 100%, or close, to preventing sevier illness after just the first shot, and near 100% effective in preventing hospitalization. thus, better to get a partial vaccine regime out now.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

And covering up their errors. When there is so much money at stake, I would think that many corporations will try to make sure they get a good return on their investments, whether it is mining companies, or pharmaceuticals. Chinese coronavirus-vaccine maker Sinovac Biotech is good at getting its pr...

Re: Chilean border's to open to tourist, none-residents

So .....In Canada we had submitted our Sworn Affidavit forms (found at www.c19.cl and which asks for details of the PCR test and results) 48 hours before our estimated arrival in Chile. Arrival?

Re: Second AFP withdrawal

Yeah I heard that before the AFP system existed there was another system . I am not sure how it worked, but it was better to be in that financially speaking . The guy that drives the excavator that does some work for me is in the old system, and gets 300k a month, still not a lot, but he works as w...
