The International Business Times covers this developing health issue in Ecuador:
After 21 people died over the weekend from drinking homemade liquor, Ecuador has instituted a three-day, nationwide ban on alcohol sales.
The law took immediate effect after people died from drinking bootleg spirits in the Los Rios province. Another 103 were hospitalized for alcohol poisoning in Los Rios and surrounding areas. The 72-hour temporary ban will give state authorities time to investigate the case.
