Chile is flattening the curve, one way Canada has done it is keep the border with the US closed, we just got another 30 days.....

Now Canada is in test and trace mode.
I'm not sure about flattening, the excess death curve looks more like a downward slope now:

Exactly as I said a few weeks ago, after doing everything wrong from March to June, they finally imposed a proper quarantine in Santiago, and 2-3 weeks later, well, here are the results :-) It was too easy, wasn't it?
Any good source to see these graphs by age bracket? Couldn´t find that breakdown on the FT pages. Wonder what they´d look like if you only included people 50 years old or younger.

The official data breaks things down by sex and age group. Official data can be found here, and the latest daily report can be found here.

Up to date, there have been 8,633 Covid-related deaths in Chile. There were 198 deaths for people up to 39 y/o (2.29% of deaths), and 297 deaths for people from 40 to 49 y/o (3.44% of the total). There are currently 1753 people in intensive care units in Chile, with 301 of them being aged 49 or lower (17.17% if cases).

Thanks Tiagoabner, I was more keen to see some kind of analysis related to the excess deaths by age group like what the FT is presenting. It´s pretty clear that excess deaths have jumped in all countries which is obviously due to the virus. I´d be interested to see if those excess death curves are actually lower than historical averages for younger age groups.

Oh, yeah. I would love to see excess deaths data for Chile, specially broken down by age group. I'm not sure where to find that data, but I'll give it a shot later today.

so we have a cheap and easy vaccine, that is proven to work, but no one wants to fund it or produce it because it will cut in to the profits of the pharmaceutical companies.

Government Report:

1,741 new cases, 336,402 total confirmed cases

18,439 active cases

45 new deaths, 8,722 total deaths (as reported to the civil register in the last 24 hour).

480 ventilators available

1,680 hospitalized, 263 critical

12,793 tests conducted, 1,445,773 total tests completed

Other notes:

they have announced partial lifting of restrictions on people over 75 allowing them to leave home for an hour a day, on certain days; but it is just too stupid and convoluted to survive the criticism it is going to generate. It simply is not workable. Expect another announcement regarding that in the coming days.

Big pharma shouldn't be able to stand in the way of plasma therapy (not a vaccine per se). You'd think enough governments involved at this point could get them out of the way
