M*A*S*H (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) Go Up At San Jose Hospitals

Medical centers in the province of San José have deployed M*A*S*H (an acronym for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) tents to attend Covid-19 cases. The objective is to prevent contacts with other people and thus slow the advance of the virus.

The “mobile hospitals” were donated by the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica.

Patients will move through the stages, from the mobile tents to the hospital, depending on their level of sickness and infection.
