Despite the vaccination of the population in Chile, the number of new infections continues to grow, the BBC reports.

In Chile, on April 9, a new record was recorded for the number of new coronavirus infections per day – over 9 thousand people. “This is worrying. […] I urge you to take care of yourself and your families, ”said Chilean Health Minister Enrique Paris at a recent conference. The country’s government re-closed borders and imposed a lockdown. The intensive care units of local hospitals are overcrowded. Chileans accuse President Sebastian Pinero of the need to introduce another strict quarantine. Most recently, the country’s authorities allowed indulgences in isolation, against the background of a high rate of vaccination of the population.
