COVID-19 in Costa Rica: 6,392 new cases the last seven days

QCOSTARICA – After a few days of r&r, I am back with my daily reports of COVID-19 in Costa Rica.

The photo shows the weather conditions for most of this past week, rain, more rain, and then some more. In downtown San Jose (pictured), the sun finally broke through the clouds this Sunday

In the last seven days (November 1 to 7), the country registered 6,392 new cases, ending the week with a total of 116,363 cases since the first in March, now eight months into the pandemic.

The number of infected is detailed as follows:

  • 56.257 women
  • 60,106 men
  • 98,377 are Costa Rican
  • 17,986 are foreigners
  • 8,017 are seniors
  • 9,672 are minors

The number is slightly lower than the 6,883 new cases, confirming that the pandemic wave is descending little by little, and the fourth week of a steady reduction in cases.

In the week of October 25 to 31, there was a reduction of 9.12% in relation to the week of October 18 to 24, which, in turn, had a decrease of close to 6% in the week of October 11 to 17 October, and this, in turn, had 2% less than the week elapsed from October 4 to 10.

According to an analysis by the Central American Population Center of the University of Costa Rica (CCP-UCR) and the Hispano-American University, this slight drop in registered cases would indicate that the peak of the pandemic wave has already been reached, but the decline is slow.

This slowdown has also had an effect on hospitalizations and deaths. On Saturday, November 7, there are 464 people hospitalized with the coronavirus; of these 179 are in an intensive care unit (ICU).

Between Friday and Saturday, 11 died associated with COVID-19: seven men and four women. Their ages range between 46 and 98 years. Costa Rica now has 1,464 deaths associated with the virus.

For Friday, November 6, there were 1,050 new cases and 9 deaths, the second-lowest daily deaths for the month (8 on November 2). The number of people in hospital on Friday was 455, of which 170 were in ICU (the lowest number this month).

On Thursday, November 5, the Ministry of Health reported 1, 1,106 new cases, 13 deaths, and 449 people in hospital; 177 of them in the ICU.
