Cool. Additionally, it seems that the placement of suspects and their contacts into "residencias sanitarias" is now obligatory?

"...la asistencia a las residencias sanitarias para casos positivos y sus contactos será obligatoria..."

Earlier this month, I found an official government website where you could review all the cases by comuna everywhere in the country. Now I can only find major regions, major cities or Santiago data.

I want all the breakdown for every comuna everywhere in the country (not Santiago), can anyone remember the site for that?

Thanks.

I don't see the map in my browser, but at the bottom of this page it says 'Mapa de casos por comuna'.

brazil is now the second most cases in the world, after the United States.
Cases are rising in Brazil and the government is split: Bolsonaro is a crazy level of antiscience (refusing to accept dozens of studies that show that chloroquine doesn't work), while most governors are trying to implement some sort of social distancing/isolation.

Brazil may end up not passing the USA due to a lack of testing.
I would be pretty surprised if Brazil surpasses the US...I'd think there would have to be >=2 out 3 people there anti-mask...but only the US has that ignoble statistic. Most other places are <=1 out of 3
The people aren't taking social distancing seriously in Brazil and the government doesn't give a fuck. In fact, Brazil is now the first in terms of daily deaths:

The main reason why Brazil is still behind the USA in number of cases is the lack of testing.

To cut through the shit being shoveled by the international press that seems hell bent on spinning Chile to their political narative and lumping Chile in with the neighbors' domestic political bullshit.

please take note that several countries appear in some of those charts and not others, as there is no data being provided for that data point (e.g. brazil is only in some).

The median group life insurance amount for US doctor groups is USD $250,000, roughly one time the average after-tax income for an American doctor. As an insurance professional, the amount that these Chilean policies will cover seems to be on the very low end of things. But then again, it's better than nothing.

Well, I guess if you look at it from a one year wages, and they are covering everyone in the healthcare industry, then it is low, but fairly close. It obviously not going to cover a doctor's wages, but say a nurse or other worker a bit better.

still ridiculously low, and chile can afford to pay more, especially considering the low rates of infections and deaths among healthcare workers. Just seen a stat out of mexico that one in 5 covid deaths are healthcare workers.

what we don't want is healthcare workers not showing up because of the risks are not worth it, if things get even worse.
