The Minister of Health reported that the increase of 294 cases registered today will require new closings. Along these lines, work is being done on the regional calibration for closures that will begin to be applied as of this Friday.
“The measures will be in force for at least a week, the closings will not be throughout the country, but they will clearly affect the Metropolitan Area. Unfortunately, the actions that we have taken to advance in opening phases have been interpreted by some people as social opening, which today produces this increase. We insist, we can all make a difference in the future of Costa Rica, ”said the minister.
The Minister indicated that today’s increases reflect the contagions that could have been registered a week ago, given the incubation periods for the virus.
The number of positives for COVID-19 that is reached today implies, in addition, greater difficulties for the health areas to follow up on the links, which adds to the always latent risk of eventual community contagion.
In addition, the rector in health, reported that the testing operations announced yesterday, moved their start date for this weekend, given that Desamparados will join the logistics, in addition to La Carpio and Alajuelita.
