(March 26th, 2020, Santiago).- The OTD Chile Unit of Health , coordinated by the psychologist Leonel Catoni announced useful information about trans health during the Covid-10 pandemic in Chile to the trans and non-binary community:
- In most hospitals, clinics, and medical centers are suspended all medical consultation appointments with specialists (endocrinologists, gynecologists, urologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists).
- The previous scheduled appointments have been rescheduled or suspended with exception of medical supervision, and treatments that might be life-threatening.
- However, hospitals pharmacies are open, so if you have a prescription you might be able to retire your medicines (hormones).
- The popular pharmacies (Recoleta), and CONAC are also open.
- This is to inform that hospitals and health care centers are a big COVID-19 source of infection, which is why we recommend you to avoid attending to these precincts, and if you have to, take all the precautions to prevent contagion (mask, gloves, wash your hands, and try to keep 3ft distance from people).
