COVID 19 in Chile

Recommended Posts

Hello JBerg,

The situation in Chile is very different, depending on the area you live in. Let's say if you are in the area of Santiago, which has a lot of people on a small amount of space, the official numbers are quite different than let's say in Santa Cruz. The majority of cases are in the big city. There they take pretty strict precautions. The greater Santiago was on complete lockdown for about two months. Only last week, they started to open a few areas in Santiago because, in those areas, the numbers started to improve. But until today, still, the majority of Santiago is closed. People are not allowed to leave their homes except when they obtain a permit. Each person is allowed two permits per week. Each permit is limited to a specific amount of time, depending on the reason for the permit.
In Santa Cruz, on the other hand, the situation is completely different. There are no restrictions on how often someone can leave their house. You can go to stores and banks without limits. The biggest change in this area is that the stores close earlier, there is a limit on how many people can be in a bank/store at a time. This means that there are lines outside, and once you get inside, your temperature will be measured, and you will be made to use a disinfectant.

No, most restaurants are closed. There are some open, but no sit-in dining is available. You can order and take it with you. Some restaurants offer deliveries as well.

You are right. Personally, it did not affect us much. We do miss going out for dinner or go to Santiago to watch a movie, but oh well, that is not a huge loss.
Did it affect the project? Definitely! Many containers that we were supposed to get from China and Europe have been delayed a lot. Some have already arrived, but some are still not here.

No, I have not had any problems from the Chilean side of the import. The delay is because of the lock downs in the countries we order from. Many can not come out to work, and many are understaffed..... The whole chain is broken, and everyone needs more time to finish a task.

    • Is the reason for the delay because Chile is now strict with import?
    • You are right. Personally, it did not affect us much. We do miss going out for dinner or go to Santiago to watch a movie, but oh well, that is not a huge loss. Did it affect the project?

    • So it seems that the coronavirus did not affect you guys much. Did it change or affect the project?
    • No, most restaurants are closed. There are some open, but no sit-in dining is available. You can order and take it with you. Some restaurants offer deliveries as well.
