Although several people have consulted for suspected coronavirus, the Ministerio de Salud (Ministry of Health) has ruled out all cases.

The most recent were six engineers who traveled to China and when they returned to Costa Rica, they had respiratory symptoms.

Facing a possible arrival of the virus in Costa Rica, the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) – Costa Rican Social Security Fund is readying with the purchase of masks and gloves to deal with the possibility.

Officials say the plan is not very different from the one used in 2009 when the AH1N1 flu arrived in the country.

In 2014 the CCSS bought suits and other personal protective equipment to treat patients with Ebola, a virus that never made it to Costa Rica. The same forecasts are being taken with the Wuhan coronavirus.

The institution reviews its inventories in a preventive way and it is not the first time that it is prepared before an international alert.
