Chile’s borders to remain closed throughout May

Chilean authorities decided not to reopen the borders throughout May to try to prevent the entry into the country of new strains of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, Health Undersecretary Paula Daza announced. In Santiago, which is under full quarantine, starting Thursday ten communes will go to phase two within the government’s step by step plan. On the other hand, various regions in the country which had been spared from a full lockdown will go back to phase 1 since the containment of COVID-19 cases has not turned out as expected.
