(QCOSTARICA) The director of Health Surveillance, Rodrigo Marín, wrote a forceful phrase on his social networks this Thursday after the exponential increase in cases caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
“I am extremely sad with the number of reported cases, the number of hospitalized, and the number of ICU patients today. It is alarming ‘O paramos la fiesta o nos lleva putas’,” Marín published on Twitter.
Toca decir esto con el perdón de mis amigos, amigas y seguidores.
Estoy sumamente TRISTE con el número de casos notificados
, el # de hospitalizados, y lo pacientes en UCI de hoy.
Es alarmante o PARAMOS LA FIESTA Ok NOS LLEVA PUTAS.
