This is the fourth death that is detected post mortem testing. The first case was on June 8, a 26-year-old woman who suffered from asthma.

The second last Saturday, that of a young man who arrived at hospital in shock, transferred by the Red Cross from a flophouse in downtown San Jose.

The third was a 51-year-old man who died at his home on July 2, in Cartago, but the virus was detected on Monday.

The deceased this Friday is the second victim of the COVID-19 who dies at home. In addition, it is the sixth death this week associated with the pandemic.

The previous death was recorded about 10 hours prior, an 89-year-old woman, a resident of the province of San José, whose death occurred at the COVID-19 Care Center (Ceaco), where she had been hospitalized since Monday, July 6, a day after she tested positive for the new coronavirus.

As reported by the Ministry of Health, her age was the main risk factor.
