3,053 Covid-19 detection tests remain for the Municipality of Quito. Given this number of tests remaining, the Secretariat will adjust the sampling. For example, the number allocated to front-line personnel will be reduced. According to Linda Guamán, an advisor to the Secretariat of Health in Quito, the number of tests will fluctuate between 400-800, depending on the day. With this daily average, the remainder of the tests could last two more weeks. While the Municipality intends to allocate additional fund for purchasing more test kits, its will be – at least – 45 days before new inventory arrives.
