The controversies continue with the announcement of the Ministry of Education (Mineduc) together with the Ministry of Health (Minsal) about extending the school break for the winter season due to the critical situation in which pediatric ICU beds are found in the health care network of the country due to respiratory diseases.
Although for the provinces of Chiloé and Palena, Los Lagos region, the measure is more confusing since in those places they have the same tradition of Aysén and Magallanes (having the last three weeks of July as recess), but the Government’s announcement indicates that from Arica and Parinacota to Los Lagos the recess is from June 30 to July 25.

Criticism of parliamentarians
The senator of the Independent Democratic Union (UDI), Ivan Moreiravia Twitter indicated that “it seems that in the Los Lagos Region they continue to punish Chiloé and Palena. The Seremi of Health and Education do not pay attention to Gabriel Boric. Now they take away a week of vacation from the children at the last minute. This is a demonstration that the Government walks aimlessly with an uncontrolled compass.”
For his part, the UDI deputy, Fernando Bórquez, pointed out in emmol that there is a lot of improvisation in the Government, he also requests that “the Ministry of Health and Education explain to the students of Chiloé and Palena why they do not have the same vacations as the rest of Chile. As always displaced by centralism.”
The PPD deputy, Hector Ulloaassured that he had a talk with the Minister of Education, Marco Antonio Avila, who was said to have an answer this Monday. In Ulloa’s opinion, what happened is an “unpresentable lack of coordination between seremías.”
