The 4.56% rate is below the 10% for declaring community transmission Health Minister, Daniel Salas, explained.

As the trend of a high number of cases each day continues, so does the number of hospitalizations, a number that quickly went from a record high of 30 early last week to an all-time high of 44 this Tuesday.

If the trend continues, we could easily be at almost 5,000 cases in a week’s time and more than 70 hospitalized, which places a tremendous strain on the capacity of the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS).

This Tuesday morning death number 16 was reported; an 89-year-old woman from Costa Rica, residing in the province of San José.

She was diagnoses on June 22, her death occurring at the Specialized Patient Care Center with COVID-19 (CEACO).

She is the fourth woman to die in the last four days, two on Saturday, one on Sunday and this morning.
