Quito, October 11, 2020
The The Daily News Box (MSP) continues to implement timely prevention strategies from the first level of care and biosecurity measures to control the COVID-19 pandemic, in the 24 provinces of the country, under international standards.
Unfortunately in social networks there are channels of misinformation that try to deceive, confuse and alarm the public, as happens in other countries of the world. In that sense, this State Portfolio urges the population to inform themselves through official channels: @Lenin, @Presidencia_Ec, @ComunicacionEc, @Salud_Ec, @MinGobiernoEc, @CancilleriaEc and @Riesgos_Ec.
The MSP denies a false statement that circulates through social networks stating that in Ecuador it is not necessary to use ventilators or Intensive Care Units for patients with COVID-19.
It is recalled that this State portfolio publishes a national infographic daily with updated information on confirmed cases, recovered, discarded, deceased, application of RT-PCR tests and other services, with the aim of transparently communicating the data for COVID-19 to the population.
As a National Health Authority, it is our responsibility to transmit to the public the biosecurity measures to control the spread of the coronavirus. In this new normal, it is essential to apply the four basic rules: mandatory use of a mask, frequent hand washing, surface disinfection and physical and social distancing (two meters).
