The province of Pichincha, which has been the most affected by the pandemic, exceeded 90,000 cases, with most infections concentrated in the capital city of Quito, the current epicenter of the pandemic in Ecuador.

The capital city's health system has almost reached full capacity due to the high levels of critically ill patients.

Authorities have appealed to citizens to follow biosecurity measures and avoid crowds, especially on Sunday, when the country will hold presidential and legislative elections.Restrictions will be modified for election day, and local authorities will be charged with complying with biosecurity measures designed by the National Electoral Council at polling centers.
