Rune, same here in San Antonio. Yeah Lider, Tottus, Santa Isabel, Mayorista 10 and the two branches of a local supermarket chain can sell booze while all the PYME outlets are screwed.
So can they not just start selling food items also or something else that's considered essential? Or is there too much bureaucracy involved? I've seen small companies reinvent themselves elsewhere.
Since when has booze not been considered an essential item. Even monkeys get drunk on fermented fruit. It´s an absolute outrage.

Not unless they already have the correct type of license. In the case of food items, that requires certification by the Health Service, not a speedy process at the best of times. And Giro modification with the SII.

I suspected that in order to do that, the famous Chilean burocracia might be involved.

Closures of ferias libres in Stgo. continue, as Lo Espejo joins Puente Alto, y Recoleta.

Extremely wise.

The pricing of fruits and vegetables in Lider can be literally 10 times higher.
Is your comment sarcastic? It's supposed to be for only 2 weeks.......at least in the case of Puente Alto.

Its easier finding information about neighbouring countries from the international media rather than from Chilean sources

11.21% unemployment

I think that is just getting started. There are a lot of buisness that were able to hang on for a few months, but now are forced to cut workers loose as there is no clear end in sight to the pandemic.

“Eco Camping La Palmera” near Vicuña closed, after stating on their Facebook that "covid-19 is a farce", and "a scam by WHO".

https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nac ... arsa.shtml

Yesterday I was following a long (100+ comments) discussion on their social media page, trying to better understand the argument of their supporters, and opponents.
What did you conclude? Is Covid-19 a farce?
