Health Minister, Daniel Salas, affirmed that this first achievement does not minimize the danger for our country, since new waves of contagion could appear if the personal hygiene and social distancing measures are not adhered to and measures are relaxed.

“Let’s not let our guard down, that’s the first thing. Individual security measures have not changed. We are working in a gradual recovery process,” said Salas.

Salas warned that strict measures may be adopted again if the number of cases turns an upswing. That decision to will come on May 11.

Of the total number of confirmed cases, 351 are women and 384 men, spread out in 60 of 82 cantons across the country.

By age, there are 693 adults (38 or who are seniors) and 40 minors. The age ranges from 1 to 87 years.
