    The cure for this pandemic has proven to be worse than the COVID-19 virus itself.

    I agreed with our government locking down our country for three weeks.

    I agreed with wearing a mask — despite knowing normal face masks are ineffective.

    The adult members of our family all received Sinovac vaccinations.

    But this insanity driven by health experts is destroying the fine fabric of our society.

    ¡Saludos de Chile!

    Don't you find it strange that with all the vaccination going on in Chile these spikes are appearing again...something not making sense...

    I share your suspicions. Unfortunately our government has enacted outrageous curfew restrictions that are a violation on individual liberty.

    Unfortunately the news media has distorted the medical emergency with misleading information. Positive COVID-19 rates have indeed risen — but so has the number of persons being tested.

    They are completely overstating the lack of critical care beds available in both our public as well as private clinics. There are a large number of critical care beds available. (The government seems to be playing a safe strategy for an anticipated 3rd wave.)

    Although the adult members of my extended family have received the SINOVAC vaccine — our grandchildren will not receive the shots because it makes no scientific sense. (I’m not an anti-vaxer but we are alarmed with the incidence of complications regarding the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.)

    ¡Saludos de Chile!
