The government of Ecuador will not renew the state of emergency enacted to cope with the new coronavirus pandemic, so that from September 12th some of the most restrictive measures would end, such as the curfew or the traffic of vehicles according to the license plate.
The government minister, María Paula Romo, announced during a virtual meeting with various media outlets, including the newspaper “El Universo”, that the “I take care of myself” plan would be unveiled this Wednesday, which no longer counts with the almost omnipotent presence of the police and the army to enforce the measures imposed so far.
While awaiting approval of the government’s proposal by the Constitutional Court, the plan does not take into account some of the measures that governed life in Ecuador’s cities during the health crisis, such as the weekend dehydration law and ban on gatherings, and concentrations as well Curfew.
However, Romo has stipulated that classes will continue to be taught electronically, although this will vary depending on the epidemiological situation of the region in which the schools are located and as long as they are able to accept and adhere to the safety protocols set by the government can will develop.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health of Ecuador has confirmed 109,030 accumulated cases and 6,368 deaths and 80,264 recovered patients this Tuesday.
