Most of those infected are believed to be from the military, with some maintenance workers also diagnosed.
Coronavirus has now reached the last continent on Earth – with the first cases identified in Antarctica.
The Chilean army announced that 36 people linked with the General Bernardo O’Higgins Riquelme base on the planet’s southern pole had tested positive for COVID-19.
The base is in the far western reaches of Antarctica, close to the southern tip of South America.
