A video out of Chile shows an elderly woman being refused entry to a supermarket because she didn’t obtain the necessary government permission to buy groceries under the country’s lockdown rules.
The clip shows the woman, who is apparently 100-years-old, appearing to be confused as she is denied access by security guards in uniform.
“Unfortunately government measures are not intended for the most vulnerable, not everyone handles the technology, not everyone has access to the internet,” tweeted Radio Villa Francia along with the video.
Adulta mayor de 100 años es impedida de comprar alimentos en un supermercado “LIDER” por no portar su permiso temporal. Lamentablemente las medidas del gobierno no son pensadas para los mas vulnerables, no todxs manejan la tecnología, no todxs tienen acceso a internet. pic.twitter.com/HrgdC7BpgM— Radio Villa Francia (@rvfradiopopular) April 10, 2021
In Chile, people have to apply for a “safe conduct pass” online, which only allows them to buy essential food items twice a week between the hours of 5am and 9pm.
