United States Strengthens Its Vital Collaboration with Ecuador in the Battle Against COVID-19 2020





The United States leads the list of countries and government agencies that have given non-reimbursable financial assistance to Ecuador to address and mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

Since March 16, Ecuador has been in a state of exception with the purpose of containing the transmission of the coronavirus and, during this time, it has also registered a worsening of the economic crisis that has dragged on for years.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicates that non-reimbursable financial assistance is understood as transitory since it will eventually translate into goods, services or supplies for the benefit of the recipient entity in the field of COVID-19.

Thus, the United States leads the list of countries and government agencies with 87.34%, followed by South Korea with 5.37%, CAF 2.69%, Qatar 1.01% and Colombia 1.01%.

The United States also leads in non-reimbursable financial assistance from countries and non-governmental organizations with 45.38%. They are followed by Spain with 17.70%, China with 12.19%, Canada 7.89%, Panama 6.90%, Saudi Arabia 3.54%, SEGIB with 2.29%, Japan with 1.54%, Norway with 1.31% and Germany with 0.53%.

At the beginning of the month, the United States Ambassador, Michael J. Fitzpatrick , pointed out that his country already adds close to $ 25 million in support to Ecuador due to COVID-19.
