The president of the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS), Roman Macaya, explained on Saturday the benefit of having a centralized medical services system, that allows the Caja to shift resources fluidly, adjusting, to the needs of the moment and particular area.

Despite that, the increase in hospitalizations continues to worry authorities, as the health system is nearing saturation, non-critical patients being moved to other medical centers, allowing for the increase in COVID-19 patients.

For that the CEACO, the specialized COVID-19 center will now be exclusive for coronavirus patients in serious condition.

Macaya described how “routine” the numbers of 500 cases a day haa become, which has an impact on health services.

“We are using the entire network,” he said.

With the strict measures in the orange zones this week and with continuous measures to July 31, authorities are expecting a decrease in infections, hospitalizations and deaths.
