The cantonal COE set different entry times for the public and private sectors to avoid accumulation of people in urban transport.
He said that the Metrovía system and the other transportation services maintain disinfection processes 3 times a day, permanently.
Regarding the La Bahía sector, Viteri acknowledged that it is a conflictive site for various reasons, but controls are being applied. She believes that the measures that large shopping malls have should be taken.
