This Saturday the commune of Santiago retreats to quarantine, setting a complex scenario for citizens. This was analyzed by the mayor of the commune, Felipe Alessandri, who applied for a bonus for people in the Social Register of Homes.And that is, the community chief insisted that this is “a very difficult measure, not easy to bear. We had one of the longest quarantines in the world, 143 days, and after that, we reached Phase 4 a few days and went backwards, therefore, the trade, daily life of the neighbors, the daily life can not be carried out for a year and a half,” he told Mega. With this, he argued that “the great theme of the commune of Santiago is that there is a lot of neighbor who is going hungry, so crude (…), they have not been able to go out to work, their business had to lower the curtain, businesses that are often weekends”. “That’s why I call on the government (…) perhaps a universal bonus to people with Social Household Registration, to be able to inject them through their RUT Accounts. There’s the technology, it can be done, because if they want those people to stay in the house they have to have at least their basic needs covered,” he replied.
