The coronavirus pandemic has left mortuaries overflowing in Ecuador causing public frustration. Despite implementing a national lockdown as early as February, the virus has rapidly spread in that country and authorities seem overwhelmed.
Ecuador, a country straddling the equator on South America’s west coast, has so far recorded about 7 257 coronavirus cases and 315 deaths.
