just had another one do a fly by.

I think puerto varas is most definitely gping to get the full lockdown. They typically move in military personnel about a week or two before going to phase 1, enter phase 2 for a week.

They're here. Army trucks on the Costanera yesterday. But the place has been jammed with people, so no surprise.

Those planes have been sporadically buzzing over for weeks/months, yeah the twin otters today, but also a jet circling too, flying over roughly ever 20 minutes for an hour or so this evening, I tell myself they are just practice flights , just training the pilots .

so, Capital Economics seems to believe chile is the only country in latin america that is in a position to do large scale vaccinations in 2021.

Chile prepurchased 10 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, but almost more important Chile has the existing vaccine infrastructure to handle deploying a 2 shot, -100 degree vaccine. Chile has been doing large scale vaccine programs for 40+ years.

whatever else chile might get wrong or right with public health care, the vaccine program has been one of the best in the world eliminating dieses that are still endemic to the nieghbors and most of the world.

Exactly, that's what makes the whole throwing the baby out with the bath water changing the constitution option so pointless.
The already useful/well functioning bits of society could have easily been improved on, but I guess perception was reality for many in the country who felt they had been screwed over. Nevermind the fact they are multiple times better off than their parents and grandparents generation, which can't easily be said for many other countries in the neighborhood.
Ah well, what's done is done, now they have made their bed they have to sleep in it, and no crying when(if) things turn to shit and get hijacked by the state and populists.

a couple of points re the vaccines... truly the Pfizer effort looks scary. Not even tested on animals and an entirely new approach which is now all of three months old? No thanks. Add to that the fact that the us .gov has given all these pharma f's complete immunity from any liability and I'm out.

Re chile and vacinations: When I was bitten by the street dog in Valpo the chile .gov paid for the five injections. I was told that chile is so determined to eliminate rabies (and other diseases) that the vaccination is provided free. I did have to pay for the wound repair plus antibiotics, but anyway, thank you chile!

Yea, would not want to point out to them that they are alive at all. Their heads would explode.

What is the child mortality rate among the neighbors?
