Although Health Minister Daniel Salas did not refer specifically to comments made by El Salvador President Nayib Bukele on testing in the country, the minister explained the evolution of the COVID-19 diagnostic process in Costa Rica.

According to the Minister, the detection chain is now more sensitive, and even so, few cases are detected.

Using simple words, Salas said during the press conference: “in the beginning, we were fishing for cases with a smaller net, now we have a larger net”.

Without mentioning the Salvadoran president by name, Salas denied his statements made on live television in El Salvador Tuesday night and followed up on Twitter.

So far, authorized laboratories in Costa Rica have carried out a total of 14,448 tests on 10,173 people.

Was the curve flattened?

“The positivity index that we have in the country, that is to say, the percentage of positive people for every hundred tests that we do, is around 6%, as well as the basic reproductive number, which refers to the number of people that infect each positive, is 1.15. All these data allow us to have a fair reflection of our reality,” said Minister Salas.

Costa Rica’s goal has been to not achieve expanded transmission. It has not confirmed Salas.
