Salas announced that one of these new infections is the 3-month-old baby. No further details were given, as the authorities do not provide information on the patients.

Up to Friday, the younger case had been that of a one-year-old, who has already recovered.

In the more than 2 months in which Costa Rica has been affected by the respiratory virus, 49 minors have been affected by the disease.
