COVID-19 Costa Rica: 503 new cases and 10 more deaths this July 28

(QCOSTARICA) With 503 new cases confirmed this Tuesday, July 28, the cumulative total is now 16,344, exceeding the number forecast for September, if the social distancing and hygiene measures were maintained.

Today’s press conference at Casa Presidencial included a full house, starting about 15 minutes later and lasting until the television stations decided we had had enough

The Minister of Health, Daniel Salas, also reported 10 more deaths over the previous day, bringing the total to 125 deaths.

This Tuesday, the number of hospitalizations remained the same as Monday, 323 people and dropping 3 from Monday to 53 in intensive care.

This Tuesday, Salas spoke of the concept of the cantonal “attack rate” to explain how the risk condition is declared in one area or another of the country and what is the increased risk of contagion in each canton, according to the analysis.

The winded talk is most likely a preamble to the announcement expected most likely tomorrow, Wednesday, on the measures that will be maintained and relaxed, changes in alert areas, vehicular restrictions and others starting on Saturday, August 1.
