The medical manager of the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS), Dr. Mario Ruiz, indicated that little by little the population statistical curves with the first dose and with the second are getting closer; In other words, a greater number of people are reaching their maximum individual immunity to the virus that Covid-19 produces.

“This is essential in an epidemiological and hospital scenario like the current one, where we are seeing an increase in the number of positive cases and we are facing this situation with maximum hospital occupancy, which makes it difficult for us to provide patients with timely care,” said Ruiz.

That said, the CCSS registers, on Thursday, September 9, 1,301 people hospitalized with Covid-19, of which 474 are in intensive care.

Hypertension remains the number one comorbidity, in addition to diabetes in the second position.
