Medical College of Chile criticizes government over Covid-19 pandemic

The COLMED National Council issued a statement that contained serious accusations, and stressed that it cannot ‘continue to back up the way decisions are made’ by authorities.

According to its executives, that institution has actively participated in the so-called Social Table and since March 2020, they have submitted more than 100 proposals, as a result of analyses with experts and scientific societies.

However, according to the statement, ‘most relevant decisions about the handling of the pandemic are not discussed at the Social Table’ and have been implemented without consultation.

It pointed out that some of those measures ‘have hindered the control over viral transmission,’ such as vacation leaves without proper conditions, the opening of borders despite the outbreak of new coronavirus variants and the reopening of casinos and restaurants in high-risk phases.

COLMED also criticized the ‘mobility pass’ enforced by the Government last week for people who have been vaccinated, ‘in an epidemiological time characterized by a growing number of cases, hospitalizations in critical beds and a high death toll.’
