Like the rest of the world, Chile is suffering the effects of the coronavirus. The military are now being used to enforce a curfew from 10pm to 5am, and there are ‘sanitary’ checkpoints on borders between regions.
Chile has a two-tier healthcare system, a blend of public and private, so those who can afford to pay get access to better healthcare. It is already being reported that the medical system is under pressure, and when there are shortages it is likely that the poor will suffer more.
Please continue to pray for Chile, that they will be able to get containment and delay measures in place, that they will not use excessive military force and that the poor and disadvantaged will be cared for.
