On March 31, the family of a 24-year-old woman, whose last name was Meléndez, a native of Alajuela and a resident of Salt Lake City, Utah, confirmed the death. The young woman had risk factors, such as diabetes and a heart operation two years earlier. The entire family nucleus of that young woman also contracted the coronavirus.

The second death of a Costa Rican in United States was that of a 68-year-old woman with the last name Estrada, who died in New York on the morning of April 1, as confirmed by a brother of the woman. In her case, the risk factors were diabetes and hypertension.
