Antarctica is the only continent where not a single person has contracted the coronavirus. Access to medicine and the necessary equipment is limited there, and the spread of the virus could have serious consequences.

Now quarantine has been introduced at all scientific stations.

“Foreign polar stations, as well as ours, Chilean, adhere to the concept of“ isolation within isolation ”. We are all following instructions from our countries, ”says Alejandro Valenzuela Peña, commander of the Chilean naval forces.

The tourist season in Antarctica ended on March 3. At many stations, scientific work was suspended ahead of schedule.

In Antarctica, medical care is difficult to obtain. Therefore, the spread of coronavirus can lead to serious consequences.

“Nevertheless, it is not difficult for us to comply with the quarantine. Local bases rarely contact each other and are located at great distances from each other, the journey takes a long time. It is very unlikely that if someone fell ill at one station, he would have managed to spread the virus without knowing about it, ”said Marcelo Leppe Cartes, director of the Chilean Antarctic Institute.
