Health services are nearly saturated, and almost the entire population is restricted. The country hopes to vaccinate 80% of its residents by June.
For several weeks, Chile has collected medals. The first country in Latin America to receive so many vaccines, The injection dose exceeds 7 million 19 million residents. Ranked third in the world in terms of population ratio, after Israel and the United Kingdom (37% of Chileans have received at least one dose). The coronavirus vaccination schedule is always sufficient to arouse the jealousy of most countries: the election campaign calls for good health these days.this is “A feat”, The Minister of Health Enrique Paris has been proud since the end of February. He estimated: “You can be proud.” “Mass vaccination represents the hope to restore our lives [d’avant] Hold the one we love in our arms”President Sebastián Piñera (right) announced with confidence that on February 12, he received the first dose of the Chinese vaccine Sinovac and administered it in an overwhelming manner in the country.
However, contrary to the wave of hope brought about by this effective campaign, other record indicators now have the upper hand: On Thursday, April 8, 8,195 positive cases were confirmed, which is unprecedented. This is reminiscent of the gloomy days in the southern autumn of 2020, when the hospital was nearly saturated and the intensive care service lost blood again: 95% of the beds were occupied.
“The epidemic is out of control, and the virus is replicating faster than it peaked in June 2020. There are too many triumphant statements that the vaccine is a blank check. There is insufficient respect for barrier measures., Epidemiologist and biostatistics expert Gabriel Cavada (Gabriel Cavada) was shocked. Faced with the wave, the government ordered a lockdown at the end of March, imposed strict restrictions on outings and activities, and closed open schools; it involved nine out of ten residents. The elections originally scheduled for April were postponed for five weeks.
But in the upstream summer, during the summer when pollution is relatively mild, Chileans can move around freely, and then return to their homes after resuming activities in March. The virus has spread. The current pollution curve is not surprising. We are experiencing the experience that the northern hemisphere has experienced with the advent of autumn and winter, and this period is also more conducive to respiratory viruses.”, Said Miguel O’Ryan, an infectious disease expert at the University of Chile. Like this country, Argentina and Uruguay are also facing sudden pollution surges. “Seasonal reversal is different from vaccines, but it makes no sense to compare the impact of vaccination on Chile and Israel.”, Emphasize infectious disease experts.
