The president recognized this Thursday the work of the Clodomiro Picado Institute of the University of Costa Rica (ICP-UCR), which together with the CCSS carries out the development of treatments to combat covid-19 through the use of plasma from recovered people and plasma of horses.

The President said that according to the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS), the recovered plasma has been applied to four sick patients. and of those, a woman recovered and was discharged.

“We are conservative in saying so, but the results indicate that they are positive and progress is being made in the next stages of that strategy,” said Alvarado.

The other project is from the plasma applied in horses, from which a synthesized is generated, that is progressing quickly and safely.

“This is innovative research worldwide, that is, very few countries are exploring this route, but it is very promising. We call on them to join in supporting the Institute,” added Alvarado.
