So far, Ecuador has recorded 83,193 confirmed cases and 5,623 people who have died from COVID-19. Quito, the capital city, registered the country's highest number of cases with 12,947, followed by Guayaquil with 11,907.
From Tuesday to Wednesday, this Andean country reported 914 new infections and 39 confirmed deaths from COVID-19.
In June, after almost four months of quarantine, Ecuador eased the restrictions to face the pandemic. Authorities launched a down-scaling mechanism called "epidemiological traffic light" to expand human mobility.
This measure replaced the strict quarantine with a physical distancing that the population partially complies with, amid a state of emergency decreed by President Lenin Moreno on March 16, which has been extended frequently.
