Between April and July, public hospitals in Quito - home to 2.78 million - expanded their intensive care units from 61 to 162, Zevallos said in a nightly interview with the Teleamazonas network.

Demand for hospital beds grew “by 1.6 times” over the same period, he added.

”The situation in Quito, the situation in (the surrounding province) Pichincha, is in a critical situation, this means that the intensive care units are full,“ he said.
