The Ministry of Health activated health monitoring and surveillance protocols also for the entry of people from China, Iran, and Italy.

This change was introduced on Tuesday mid-morning, two hours before the confirmed entry of the group of Costa Rican singers.

Marín explained that none of these travelers had symptoms but, for health safety reasons, have received daily monitoring of symptoms.

“None are admitted to hospital, only under preventive follow-up,” he insisted, adding that he is personally attending to these Costa Ricans, maintaining daily communication with everyone through WhatsApp group created for that purpose.
