Chile digs thousands of graves for Covid-19 surge

Thousands of fresh graves are being dug in the Chilean capital’s main cemetery amid a spike in the South American country’s Covid-19 cases, authorities said Thursday.

Chile’s infection rate soared this week, prompting the government to declare a mandatory lockdown of Santiago’s seven million people from Friday.

The country recorded between 350 and 500 new infections a day until a surge in cases at the weekend. By Wednesday, 2,600 infections were registered in a 24-hour period, with almost the same number on Thursday.
