Ecuadorians: Among the most COVID -19 vaccinated people
Ecuador has carried out a brilliant COVID-19 vaccination effort this past year. According to Ourworldindata.org, which gathers information from public sources, Ecuador currently ranks among the top countries in total population vaccinated. It's ahead of countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany and the USA.
Being vaccinated reduces the chances of contracting, transmitting and becoming seriously ill from the virus. This implies that visitors to Ecuador will be less exposed to COVID-19 risks than in almost any other country on the planet. Of course, the usual protocols (social distancing, masks and hand-washing) will contribute a lot to reducing the risk.
Ecuador currently requires visitors to be fully vaccinated prior to arrival, along with having proof of a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to embarking on your flight to the country.
