Sergey Larin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club from Chile:
Today we had an unplanned descent down to Copiapo. A member of the expedition suffers of strong conjunctivitis. We had to go down to the hospital. There are no threats to life and loss of vision ability. But the doctors forbade to continue climbing. The rest of members are waiting for me at an altitude of 4500 in the refuge Murray.
