Yeah a big Air Force boeing 767 or similar has come in low and slow last three days into Puerto Montt in the late afternoon.

I live in Concepcion in a rented apartment, working, stuck here since January.

I own an apt in Providencia which is still on the books as my principal residence even though my license now has Concepcion.

I have a lot of business and financial tramites and personal things that I must do in Santiago by year end.

As Conce is Phase 2 and may not move any time soon, at least not in the right direction, and Provi moving from Phase 3 to 4 this week, is there a legal way for me to drive to Providencia around Dec 20 and back to Conce Dec 27 or do I have to leave at 2 am on my BMW motorcycle with a blackout switch wired to the taillights?

Legal? Probably technically not. But, judging by what I’ve seen, it seems pretty easy to get a permission or salvoconducto to travel between regions. I know someone who travelled between Osorno and Valdivia (both in phase 1) and they were able to obtain a permission because they “were bringing medicine to an elderly relative”. As an immigrant, I’m not so prepared to brazenly lie like that, but it seems like a lot of people just do, because the carabineros simply do not check.

there is a salvoconducto for moving between regions, and various other reasons.

so I am scratching my head about these announcements from maderna and Pfizer regarding the magical "95%" claims.

someone explain the math to me. perhaps the back of my napkin is dirty.

so, maderna for instance, had 30,000 participants in their study, 15,000 got a placibo, and among those only a couple hundred people contracted covid. rember, they are suppose to be testing in areas with up to 50% positivity rates in the population.

my math says, we would expect at least 1,500 cases or more in the placibo group.

what did they lock them in a bubble?

here is a great article on the history behind both vaccines and their companies:

https://www.statnews.com/2020/11/10/the ... cine-race/

in short, mRNA vaccine has never been successfully done before, and both these companies have never developed a single product before.

I am not a flat earther, but I have a lot of experience with first generation technology. The rule with first gen tech is simple: wait.

Wait, until it is no longer first generation. I will not buy a first generation cell phone. A first generation car. I will not even fly on a first generation airplane, and this has the potential to be a super charged 737-max.

wish them the best of luck. hope it turns out well for everyone's sake. sounds like there is super potential in the technology to solve all sorts of medical issues. but, not donating my arm to that experiment.

I was talking to my neighbor / friend that is a retired french doctor. he just got back in the country. The subject came up about the mRNA vaccines. The way his eyebrows went up and he rolled his eyes pretty much said it all.

yea, got woken up about 2 a.m. last week with steady stream of airforce planes going overhead for about 30 mins. they were evacuating patients out of the puerto montt hospital which was maxed out.

the idiot mayor of pv was calling for people to ignore the quarantine. he is trying to save the tourism money, not the people.

In a lot of ways PV being in quarantine is more of a hassle for us personally than frutillar. I can get by without going to frutillar much, but tend to do shopping in pv and also have to take my mother in law in to pv three times a week for dyalis.

The doctor at the dyalis center told everyone that they were not sending anyone to the puerto montt hospital anymore unless they were really dieing. a couple of weeks ago they called an ambulance for one of the patients that had a swallon foot. The guy went to the PM public hospital, caught covid and died the following week.
