After an epidemiological assessment of weeks 36 and 37 in the framework of the National Situation Room, the National Commission for Risk Prevention and Emergency Attention (CNE) allowed to make a readjustment in the alert condition of the cantons by identifying a decrease in the cantonal risk index in several of them, so that today there are 6 decreases in cantons from orange alert to yellow alert.
|San José||Mora y Goicoechea.|
|Heredia||Flores y San Pablo.|
In contrast, five cantons went from yellow alert to orange alert due to an increase in their cases, such as Aserrí in San José, Zarcero in Alajuela, San Rafael and San Isidro in Heredia and Siquirres in Limón.
After the changes indicated, the cantons that are in orange alert condition are:
|San José||San José, Desamparados (salvo distritos de San Cristóbal y Frailes), Santa Ana, Alajuelita, Tibás, Curridabat, Acosta, Coronado, Aserrí.|
|Alajuela||Alajuela (salvo distrito Sarapiquí), Río Cuarto, distrito Pital (San Carlos), Zarcero.|
|Heredia||Heredia (salvo distrito Varablanca), Santo Domingo, Barva, Belén, San Rafael, San Isidro.|
|Puntarenas||Garabito, Montes de Oro y el distrito de Palmar del cantón de Osa|
Early alerts for respiratory symptoms
Currently 84 districts of 29 cantons maintain the risk due to an increase in consultations for cough and fever, which increases the risk of facing an orange alert soon, since they are symptoms associated with COVID-19.
