Costa Rica reaches 40 hospitalized by COVID-19

(QCOSTARICA) This Monday, the Ministry of Health reported 40 patients hospitalized for COVID-19, the highest number since the start of the pandemic.

According to the official report, four of them are in intensive care with an age range of 43 to 68 years.

Health Minister, Daniel Salas, alerted the population about activities that have been carried out and violate social distancing.

“We have seen that many of these transgressions are taking place in private places and they do it thinking that nothing is going to happen (to them), but this is how the effects of the pandemic occur in different societies,” said the Minister.

Salas called on Costa Ricans to think about other countries where the exponential growth of the coronavirus has caused that not everyone can be saved from the COVID-19.

“Costa Rica is still privileged. The moment we want to live as if there were no pandemic, the balance we have had so far can be quite unbalanced,” added Salas.

Costa Rica’s accumulated cases of COVID-19 reached 3,269 on Monday with 139 new cases reported.

To date, 15 people have died from COVID-19 in the country: nine men and six women.
