[Summary of the Day]

#CoronavirusEcuador #InfoWambra

Wednesday, May 6, 2020

Yesterday, May 5, the national COE did not release numbers about the number of cases that there are in the country, today they released the numbers once again but with inconsistencies. In today’s report, they counted 2,461 fewer confirmed cases and 399 fewer ruled out cases than in the report from May 4. Faced with these inconsistencies, the Ministry of Health announced,  through their twitter account, that these variations stem from the “constant validation” that has allowed for the identification of “duplicate test records”, meaning that tests were applied multiple times to the same patient. The Vice Minister of Health, Francisco Xavier Solórzano, gave a similar explanation during today’s National televised address.

Here we share with you the numbers submitted by the national COE:

📚 Today the Education Commission of the National Assembly summoned the Minister of Economy and Finance, Richard Martínez, to explain why he decided to cut the budget of the Universities by an amount that exceeds 98 million dollars. However, the minister did not show up. Therefore, the Commission has decided to start the impeachment process for non-compliance with regulations by not following the ban of budget cuts for public education during the state of emergency.
