In the past 24 hours, tests detected 1,852 new COVID-19 cases, and 94 more deaths were registered, according to the Latam country Health Ministry.

Of the new infections, 1,343 people were reported as having symptoms. Some 1,259 patients are hospitalized in intensive care units, including 203 considered to be in critical condition.

Chilean health authorities said 353,131 former patients have recovered from the disease, while 16,604 cases are currently considered to be active.

Chile is under a state of catastrophe declared months ago to enforce better lockdown and social distancing measures with the help of the army and police force, including a nighttime curfew.

The Minister of Health of the Latam nation, Enrique Paris, said that the government is holding talks with all the countries that are capable of producing vaccines against the virus. So, once available, the Advisory Committee on Vaccines and Immunizations would define which will be applied.
