“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.
