⚱️ The Santa Elena Civic Committee and its prefect denounced that up to April 24, 924 deaths related to COVID-19 have been counted within the communes, for this reason the Committee requested the Ministry of Government to redistribute the police personnel to control the area.
💰 The Government Minister, María Paula Romo, reported that 91 million dollars have been delivered to the decentralized autonomous governments. This was reported, in response to the complaint of some GAD’s about the lack of budget, due to the pending values that the executive has with local state entities.
👥 The Economic Regime Commission of the National Assembly restructured the humanitarian support project delivered by the executive. Some of the changes that the commission made are related to «solidarity contributions» that now must be delivered by people who earn from $ 720 onwards, not from 500. On companies, the commission decided that the contributions of 5 % are delivered based on the fiscal year of the last year and not 2018 as stated by the executive.
