The 'Quito Solidarity' Temporary Care Centre for COVID-19 patients opened its doors on Friday with Ecuadorian Health Minister, Juan Carlos Zevallos and Quito Mayor Jorge Yunda visiting the facility.
According to reports, the center is equipped with 370 beds, nursing stations, a testing area, a pharmacy, and a recreational area for patients to communicate with their families.
The objective... Еще of the center is to be able to deal with a possible increase in the number of infected people in the city. «We hope that the capital city will never be overwhelmed, but we should never say that we are out of danger, because obviously it is an unpredictable disease, in some cities of the world, they are already facing a second wave, a resurgence,» explained Yunda.
According to Johns Hopkins University, Ecuador has recorded 31,467 cases of COVID-19 and 2,594 deaths related to the virus.
