Most people who need to get to the bus station use the Tur-Bus or Centropuerto airport bus.

Good luck tracking those fellow passengers down.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I find it amusing the stupid comments from chileans under the articles, and just in general talking to people. They really have no clue, and have not been paying attention to what is going on.

let's see some of the gems, I have seen so far.

you can cure it with paracetamol.

They are requiring everyone flying in to chile to wear masks, so don't worry about catching it.

It is just the flue.

It is just the flue, so the flue shot will take care of it.

will keep an eye out for more.

Given the dates involved, my guess is we start hearing about cases among the university students in concepcion in the next week or so. It was prime time for their return from vacation.

My favourite I've been seeing all over social media today is "The outbreak in Chile is a montaje devised by the government to stop the protests!"

It appears there are two forms of COVID 19, the first to show up was very aggressive and thus the young healthy doctor who blew the whistle died, now they are seeing a much less aggressive form.......the problem is the new form doesn’t make healthy people sick so it’s easily missed and thus easily spread.......
It's all about the wine.
