More than 270,000 people appointed as polling station staff for the Ecuador general election are taking COVID-19 rapid antigen tests ahead of the vote, with hundreds tested in the capital Quito on Friday.
The measure was implemented by the National Electoral Council and testing started on Tuesday, aiming to control the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in the country.
Test results are received within 15 minutes and local health authorities are in charge of sending the data to the National Electoral Council.
If anyone tests positive for COVID-19, the person will have to comply with home isolation for ten days, meaning that they will be out of the electoral process.
More than 13 million citizens will vote for Ecuador's new president and vice president, 137 legislators, and five Andean Parliament members on Sunday.
