                Chile records 323,698 cases of Covid-19 and announced the only count of deaths

                By Efe news on Thu, 07/16/2020 - 14:19

                In the midst of the national balance, the Minister of Health, Enrique Paris, reported that from tomorrow the numbers of deaths from the epidemic count will be prepared by the DEIS.

                The Minister of Health, Enrique Paris, announced this Thursday that the balance of deaths from coronavirus will change from Friday, after numbering 2,475 new cases in the country, for a total of 323,698 people infected, while with 104 deaths registered in the Civil Registry, deaths would reach 7,290.

                "Starting tomorrow, the report on confirmed deaths will be based on the figures prepared by the DEIS (Department of Statistics and Health Information, under the Chilean Ministry of Health)," said the secretary of state.

                Until now, there were 2 balance of deaths confirmed by Covid-19: a daily count, by the Ministry of Health, which was part of the daily balance and which only considered those deaths registered in the Civil Registry; and a weekly figure, provided by DEIS, which was part of the epidemiological report and included more data sources, causing a gap between the two measurements.

                Paris assured that the new unique modality is due to the fact that the DEIS is already capable of generating the information on a daily basis, so from now on its methodology and its figures will be used to count the deaths from coronavirus.

                "We will continue with the epidemiological report twice a week," said Paris in relation to the publication of numbers by the DEIS.

                Clinical trials and vaccines

                "Phase 3 clinical trials should start in the first days of August," the health minister said of when human testing of ongoing coronavirus vaccines could begin.

                In addition, he said four vaccine developers are being evaluated to choose which trial to eventually join. The minister stressed that the evaluation process is being led by the Science portfolio, whose head is Andrés Couve.

                "We hope that Chile will have a significant amount of vaccines," said the Minister of Health.

                When asked about the possibility of lifting the quarantines in the Metropolitan and Valparaíso regions (which in the opinion of some experts show positive figures), Paris reiterated that the decision is made jointly and stated that he cannot "advance anything regarding quarantines. "

                Plebiscite protocols

                The Minister of Health also referred to the measures that would be taken in the event of a plebiscite that seeks to approve or reject a Constituent Assembly, an event scheduled for October 25.

                "We offer the Servel (Electoral Service) all our collaboration to have a protocol as safe as possible to avoid viral spread," said Paris, while ruling out interference on the proposal to extend the vote for 2 days.

                With almost 324,000 cases, the country remains the sixth country worldwide with the most infected by Covid-19.

                          Chile registers 2,099 new cases and claims to be "prepared for regrowths"
                          Coronavirus By EFE Monday, July 20, 2020 Share
                          A very popular commercial artery in Chile, at the time of the coronavirus.

                          EL NUEVO DIARIO, SANTIAGO DE CHILE.- The Government of Chile reported 2,099 new cases of coronavirus on Monday during the last 24 hours, with a total of 333,029 infections since the start of the pandemic, and assured that the country is “prepared to sprouts ”.

                          "We have to continue working with great force, with a lot of momentum, because we are aware that there may be outbreaks and we are prepared for outbreaks," Health Minister Enrique Paris said in his daily report.

                          Health authorities released more details about the gradual plan of unconfinement that President Sebastián Piñera announced this Sunday, called "Footsteps" and divided into five stages: quarantine, transition, preparation, initial opening and advanced opening.

                          Asked about the possibilities of resuming activity in the Metropolitan region, where more than eight million people live, the Undersecretary of Assistance Networks, Arturo Zúñiga, indicated that "probably" it is not managed by communes (municipalities) but by "blocks".

                          Thus, the localities will advance in each step of the strategy in a conglomerate manner and according to a series of indicators, such as hospital occupation or the evolution of new infections, which in case of worsening the Government will decide to reverse.

                          POSITIVITY ROAD TO 10%

                          The Minister of Health celebrated that the positivity rate of PCR tests at the national level, which on the last day was 16,343, fell to 13%: "Obviously, it is a very positive figure for the country."

                          "These small advances, these positive changes, allow us to prepare people and cities to think about returning to the activity that we all hope to achieve one day," he said.

                          The deceased by COVID-19 confirmed with a PCR test amounted to 8,633 after 130 new deaths were registered on the last day.

                          As published yesterday by the Department of Statistics and Health Information (DEIS) of the same ministry, there are another 3,932 suspected deaths from coronavirus that are not included in the daily report.

                          NORTH CONCERN

                          The Metropolitan region, where Santiago is located, is on track to serve ten weeks under mandatory quarantine, as it was the main source of infection in the country since the arrival of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus until the end of June.

                          However, the northern regions of Arica, Antofagasta, Atacama and Tarapacá, together with O’Higgins (center), are the ones that are now worrying the health authorities about the evolution of the rate of infections with respect to their population.

                          Chile is the eighth country in the world with the highest number of positive cases for COVID-19, above the United Kingdom, Iran and Spain, according to the Johns Hopkins University, in the United States.

                          The southern regions of Aysén and Los Ríos are, to date, the only ones that have returned to the “new normal”, in which cinemas, theaters, restaurants and cafes can operate at 25% of their capacity.
