Almost 300 respirators are on their way to the Caja’s hospitals, increasing the capacity to attend to the most complicated patients with covid-19 from 440 respirators at present to more than 700 in the coming days.

The stretchers and body bags for corpses will also be increased because it is probable that the coronavirus covid-19 will increase the number of deaths in Costa Rica.
