The matter is not much better at other hospitals such as San Juan de Dios, which only had two beds left, the Enrique Baltodano Briceño, in Liberia, only 2 available and in the Escalante Pradilla, in Pérez Zeledón, one of the two were not in use.

In total, the country has 125 ICU beds for critical patients and 118 were occupied as of Monday afternoon.

In the case of ICU beds for severe patients, not that much better. Of the 230 beds in the ICU for severe patients, 191 are occupied and 22 are free; 17 are not available.

The Children’s Hospital has 5 beds for ICU patients, two are occupied and 3 are free.
