translated from Spanish: Guido Girardi backed Izkia Siches’ sayings: «shows the extreme heartbreak and frustration we all have»

Senator Girardi accused the government of not avoiding delaying elections20 March 2021 15:26 Senator Guido Girardi (PPD) called on the Government to exercise the necessary health measures to avoid suspending the elections on April 10 and 11.» We do not see serious action in the Government, to avoid taking the decision to suspend the elections, it is as if they want to reach a critical point, with beds occupied to choose to postpone,» he said. The senator stated that «we are in a critical situation, we share what is raised by the Medical College, if the increase in positive cases continues and the chain of contagions is not cut, chances are that two weeks earlier we will have to evaluate whether it is postponed. Something that no one wants and can be avoided, but with a high occupancy of ICU beds and critics – who have oxygen and save lives – it will have to be evaluated.» According to Girardi, «no measure to cut the chain – traceability and isolation – is running accordingly. There is also no social assistance needed, without discrimination and small print, so that people can comply with isolations,» he said. In this regard, he stressed that «the Government has been insensitive and has been late, a direct contribution to its Ruth accounts is required without bureaucratic intermediaries». The MP added that «yesterday there were 36,433 new active cases, the rule states that 100% of them must be isolated in health facilities, but there are only 6,000. The other 30, 000 are in their homes. That is negligence and inability of the Ministry to enforce the most important stage of the process: isolating the infected and suspects.» The senator also expressed his support to the president of the Medical College, Izkia Siches, noted that she «shows the extreme heart and frustration that we all have.» This is the worst government in Chile’s recent history, particularly in the management of the pandemic. I have the best opinion from Minister Paris, but I have witnessed that decisions are not made by him, but are resolved by the Segpres with the economic sectors that are in charge and resolved in the light of protecting the interests of companies,» he argued. Girardi felt that «when the law of Isapres is to be discussed, it is not Minister Paris who resolves, nor who presents the project to privatize Fonasa, nor who decreases scholarships for specialists… the Second Floor Segpres are the ones who develop strategies to maintain and deepen abuses.»
