Goodbye Lenin? Ecuadorian president delegates powers as country slips further into chaos amid Covid-19 disaster- RT

Ecuador’s unpopular leader Lenin Moreno has never been so politically isolated, and might be readying his own departure as anti-austerity protests grow in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.
