Corpses Litter Ecuador’s Streets as Port City Rapidly Becomes “Wuhan of Latin America”

Ecuador’s major port city of Guayaquil has become a scene of absolute horror as health authorities appear unable to contain the rapid spread of the coronavirus, resulting in corpses being abandoned in the streets.

The sudden spread of the disease in the Andean nation has made the country the epicenter of the pandemic in Latin America, with regional newspapers dubbing Guayaquil “The Wuhan of Ecuador.”

According to officials, over 400 bodies have been recovered both from the streets and from empty buildings. The situation has rapidly overwhelmed funeral homes and mortuaries in the city of 3.6 million.

On Wednesday, Vice Minister of Comprehensive Healthcare Ernesto Carrasco announced that the South American country’s Emergency Operations Committee had registered 3,163 infections and 120 deaths, with 82 of the deaths occurring in Guayas province, whose capital is Guayaquil.

However, Associated Press reports that medical professionals believe the true number of coronavirus cases may be at least five times the official count.

Shocking video shared online showed people collapsing in the middle of the streets and corpses being draped in cloth by loved ones or burned in the open by frightened residents, while images have filtered out depicting coffins strewn throughout the city—suggesting that authorities haven’t yet tallied the recent wave of deaths.

Guayaquil Mayor Cynthia Viteri, who has announced that she has also been infected, has demanded that the federal government of President Lenin Moreno should step up efforts to collect bodies, reports Los Angeles Times.

In a video message posted to Twitter, she said:

“They’re leaving them in the villages, they fall in front of hospitals … No one wants to recover them.”

The federal government has come under sharp criticism for its handling of the pandemic as well as for the neoliberal policies enforced prior to the crisis, which saw thousands of nurses, doctors, and healthcare workers being sacked since President Moreno came to power in May 2017.

Moreno has backtracked on a proposal to dig a mass grave for the dead in Guayaquil as the city’s ruling Social Christian Party has insisted on residents receiving a proper “Christian burial.”

In the meantime, very few coronavirus tests have been made available to the public, with the cost of testing being far too expensive for most Ecuadoreans.

Along with the spiraling mortality rates, the government’s poor handling of the crisis has raised fears that the spread of CoViD-19 will be far more widespread than the government is willing to acknowledge—as well as a terrifying preview of what awaits the broader region.

  3. Just read what the leader of the WHO organisation is about.

    Yeah right
    moderated its Marxism-Leninism since coming to power in the early 1990s, in reality, critics say EPRDF governed in a deeply corrupt and autocratic fashion.
    Tedros, the “right-hand man” of late dictator Meles Zenawi, served in multiple senior positions in the Ethiopian regime over those years, including a term as “health minister” and later a stint as “foreign minister.”
    His “service” has been widely criticized, so much so that his original biography on WHO’s website initially omitted several of the most important points in his career. ,,,,,

    ….. As “Minister of Health,” Tedros reportedly played a key role in covering up epidemics. Perhaps the most significant example was his concealing of multiple cholera outbreaks, falsely labeling them water-borne diarrhea and downplaying the crises.
    He also bullied bureaucrats into silence about these problems, news reports and critics say.
    Later, as “Minister of Foreign Affairs,” Tedros helped the regime hunt down journalists and dissidents, including those who fled abroad.

    And that darkie was demanding integrity before all else.

    Read the lot, a nasty work of a man., and symbolizes how the corrupt UNicornical systems are run.

    To have our own people using the WHO is a death knell to us too.
    And Ardern seems to have the same style of adhans., that is the style that Willie Jackson believes, of that kindness, compassion & solidarity of communism. 🙁
