    06/05/2020 19:17

    Santiago de Chile, Jun 5 (EFE) .- The Chilean Ministry of Health reported on Friday a new record number of 92 deaths from coronavirus in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths to 1,448, while other deaths were recorded. 4,207 infections in the last day, raising the global count to 122,499

    The Undersecretary of Health, Paula Daza, specified that within the total of deaths, 72 correspond to the new criterion of deaths whose death certificates related to the deceased with COVID-19 despite the fact that he did not have a positive PCR test result for the disease at time to die.

    However, Daza reported that this Friday's session would be the last time that a distinction would be made between the deaths since it could generate "confusion", according to the authority.

    Regarding the total number of cases, of the 1,222,499 people who have been infected since the first case was counted on March 3, 21,693 are considered active cases (with the capacity to infect third parties).

    Among those who are being cared for in the health network due to the pandemic, 1,521 patients are in intensive care units; 1,291 of them are connected to mechanical ventilation, while of this last number, 337 people are in critical condition.

    The Undersecretary of Assistance Networks, Arturo Z˙˝iga, assured that the country has 327 mechanical ventilators available, in addition to about 400 oxygenation equipment.

    Another point that was reported was the increase in sanitary residences in the territory, which reach 129, with approximately 11,631 places to house people with the disease, but who cannot maintain social distancing and other necessary measures to avoid infecting third parties. .

    For his part, the Health Minister, Jaime Ma˝alich, said that starting next week, PCR tests will be implemented based on a saliva sample, a process that would allow increasing the number of people tested, as it is simpler to administer than the original procedure, which consists of taking a sample from the bronchial tree of the person examined.

    It should be remembered that this Friday the town of Lonquimay, located 755 kilometers south of Santiago, will end its quarantine, thus being the only area affected by this measure that will end the confinement, leaving only the Chilean capital, six conurbations of this and the northern cities of Iquique and Alto Hospicio as the sectors that will remain in quarantine, at least until next Friday, July 12.

                The Chilean Ministry of Health reported 6,754 new infections with the new coronavirus this Friday, bringing the total number of cases to 160,846, while there were 222 deaths associated with the virus in recent days, totaling 2,870 deaths.

                The new methodology that the Government follows to count deaths is based on crossing the information from the Civil Registry with the positive results of the PCR exams, which is why it reports the deaths of several previous days and not the last 24 hours.

                As for the new infections, the undersecretary of Healthcare Networks, Arturo Z˙˝iga, commented that 6,217 of the patients presented symptoms, while the remaining 537 were asymptomatic. The number of active cases reached 26 618 people.

                Z˙˝iga also reported that there are 1,617 patients with COVID-19 in intensive care units; 1,391 of them connected to mechanical ventilation. Of the latter, 372 would be in critical condition. The health authority put 310 mechanical fans available nationwide at 310.

                Vaccine clinical trials

                After the balance given by the undersecretary Z˙˝iga, the science minister, AndrÚs Couve, announced the implementation of a strategy to establish international collaborations to carry out clinical trials in Chile, "contributing to the development of the vaccine and the strengthening of the scientific community "said the minister.

                This measure would seek to facilitate Chile's eventual access to the vaccine created in the future.

                "As a Ministry, we are working so that when the time comes we will ensure timely and equitable access in Chile of a safe and effective vaccine for COVID-19 through international collaboration in research and development and making available the capabilities and advantages of our country, "said Couve.

                According to the head of the Science portfolio, a study from China has already been contacted, which is already starting its testing phase in humans (clinical phase).

                It should be remembered that it will be at 22 hours on Friday when more than 9 million people in Chile will begin a new round of quarantines, whether they begin or extend for another week.

                Thus, the communes that will remain in quarantine until at least next Friday, June 19 are: Pozo Almonte, Alto Hospicio, Iquique and Calama (in the north of the country); the coastal cities of San Antonio, ValparaÝso and Vi˝a del Mar in the central sector; while in the Metropolitan region the measure will govern the entire province of Santiago (where the Chilean capital is located) plus 11 conurbations.

                With the new data and in comparison with the figures published by the American Johns Hopkins University, Chile is the third country in Latin America with the most cases of coronavirus, being preceded by Peru and Brazil.
