As part of the actions, the Ministry of Health will send this case with the evidence gathered to the prosecutor’s office of the College of Physicians of Costa Rica since the passenger is a Costa Rican doctor.

“The Ministry of Health reiterates that any company or person who wishes to register COVID-19 tests can request it, complying with the sanitary registration requirements for medical equipment that guarantee the effectiveness of the product, a determining factor in tests of this type,” said the Ministry of Health in a press bulletin.
