Chile restores capital lockdown despite rapid vaccinations

Chile has restored quarantine restrictions in the Santiago metropolitan region because of rising COVID-19 cases in spite of an expeditious vaccination drive. The new restrictions will take place at 5am on 13th March and will be reviewed at the end of the month to determine if there will be an extension, according to the health ministry. Around 4.5 million residents have been vaccinated to date, representing 23% of the population.
