Since last May 30, the Ministry of Health has not offered the daily report on Covid-19, a fact attributed to the cyberattack suffered by the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) on May 31, which caused serious damage to its digital systems and in the provision of its services.

Slowly the Caja’s systems are being restored. On Wednesday the Caja’s EDUS system was back online following the attack. See CCSS enables EDUS in health centers after almost three months of cyber attack
