Covid-19 is spreading rapidly around the globe causing illness and disruption to daily life in almost every country.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and dozens of governments are taking actions to reduce spread and minimize the impact of the virus.
The number of cases is evolving quickly in Ecuador and hundreds of thousands of families are at risk.
Global and local Covid-19 caseloads can be monitored here.
The CDC and the US State Department is currently recommending that all non-essential international travel be halted.
In line with these recommendations, we are postponing our medical missions and volun-tours through June to decrease the likelihood of further spread of the virus in Ecuador and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, and patients.
PACH’s leadership team, board of directors, and local staff continue to monitor the situation and are in constant contact to evaluate and mitigate risk.
We are thinking about medical professionals around the globe who are risking their lives to care for others. You are our heroes.
