QCOSTARICA – It started in Guanacaste, but the Zika virus is now also present in Alajuelita (San Jose) and Jacó.

The Health Ministry Vector Control Program coordinator, Dr.Rodrigo Marin, asserted Monday that they had been working hard for a week and a half to control a Zika virus outbreak in Playa Jaco, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.

In statements to Telenoticias Channel 7 news, the official explained that fortunately the outbreak is currently located in the neighborhood Pueblo Nuevo and not in the centre of that town, in which tourism is the main economic activity.

“I hope the number of cases begins to decrease this week in Pueblo Nuevo,” said Marin, who assures that as with previous outbreaks in different areas of the country, this one will also be controlled.

In it’s weekly bulletin, Ministry of Health said 32 autochthonous cases of Zika had been reported up to Wednesday last week in the country, including the 19 in Jaco.
