The death toll of the earthquake that shook the center-south region of the country on Saturday rose to 802, Chilean Interior Vice Minister Patricio Rosende said on Wednesday. Quake-caused damage to Chile are so far estimated to be up to 30 billion U.S. dollars, or a fifth of the country's gross domestic product.
