Since March 16, Ecuador's population has been in massive residential isolation.
Ecuador's Minister of Government Maria Paula Romo announced Sunday that those who wish to enter the country must present a PCR test to diagnose COVID-19, which certifies that the passenger is free of the disease.
"The PCR test will be mandatory and must have been performed no more than 72 hours before boarding. The measure will take effect from this Thursday at midnight," Romo Twitted.
Until next Thursday, a rapid test will be carried out on those who arrive in the country.
The measure was taken after two passengers traveled to the country knowing they were carrying the disease. It was later learned that they had left their hospitalization to travel.
"Cases like these require new precautions," Romo said.
