Since last February 19, the Caja reported that it would take advantage of the fall in Covid-19 cases to gradually resume other face-to-face services and free up the number of beds dedicated to covid-19 patients.

As of Tuesday, the latest numbers from the Ministry of Health, 241 people were hospitalized for covid-19, of which 130 were in an intensive care unit (ICU).

This down from a month ago (February 16) when 343 people were hospitalized, of which 170 in an ICU; markedly down from two months ago (January 16) with 577 people in hospital, of which 240 were in an ICU. See here a timeline of covid-19 in Costa Rica.

The total number of deaths associated with covid-19 in Costa Rica is 2,886.
