QCOSTARICA – Costa Rica has not recorded a case of smallpox since 1933, that is, 89 years ago. In addition, it has not vaccinated the population against this disease since 1959. This according to the School of Biology of the University of Costa Rica (UCR).

This issue becomes relevant given the analysis made by the Ministry of Health on a possible suspected case of monkeypox (viruela símica in Spanish), which has already accumulated more than 650 cases in 20 countries.
