Poor Township Residents Lament Lack of Help During Coronavirus Lockdown in Ecuador

Residents of Monte Sinai township near Guayaquil in Ecuador talked about their fears on Monday as they struggled to survive the coronavirus lockdown.

“Day to day, this situation is devastating. I used to work every day, I was a peddler and now we have nothing, we can’t go out and start selling. I was afraid to spread it [coronavirus] to my family, so I quit going out. We haven’t received help from anyone, absolutely nobody,” said one of residents.

People in vulnerable areas like Monte Sinai with little or no access to medical care were among the hardest-hit by the restrictions.

According to Johns Hopkins University, Ecuador registered more than 7,500 coronavirus cases, with 355 related deaths.
