The first case reported on 05/03/2020 and the first death reported on 22/03/2020.

The aforementioned information is derived from the data. From this point on we analyze our assumptions, choices and conclusions based on the model.

The basic assumption is that the reported data are not showing the reality of COVID-19 spread. This is based on the fact that there is no efficient testing on the whole population. For our analysis, only daily deaths can give a good estimation of the disease progression. This is the reason why we do not calibrate the model to the data, as we want the model to capture what happens in reality, without overfitting.

With this in mind, we assume that around 50 exposed persons entered the Chilean province between 20/02/2020 and 04/03/2020.

The Potential Isolation Effectiveness reached 25% and the Behavioral Risk Reduction reached 89%.

The reaction time of people to the measures is 7 days, on average.

The confirmed cases are around 20% of the real number. This percentage is bigger compared to other countries.

We assume that season has an effect of 26%.

Overall, Chile tries to increase Hospital Capacity. This analysis assumes that the measures stay as they are; if any of the aforementioned measures are lifted, the analysis must be updated.
