“The Intertropical Convergence Zone has approached our country, a condition that favors humidity entering our territory and the increase in rainfall in it,” says the Instituto Metereologico Nacional (IMN).

This Monday a greater cloud cover is expected from the morning in the Pacific and South Caribbean, where rains could occur. In addition, in the afternoon the occurrence of storm showers is expected on the Pacific side and in the Central Valley,” is the weather report for tdoay

The Ministry of Health warns that with the start of the rains, the panorama of the health emergency will get complicated, as the seasonal respiratory viruses increase.

The other side of the coin is that the rains will bring relief to the lack of water, but it will not be immediate. The scarcity and water rationing continues to affect a large part of the population.

“It has been seen that in Costa Rica the cases of respiratory viruses increase from the months that the rains begin,” said Dr. Rodrigo Marín, director of Health Surveillance at the Ministry of Health.

“The most important thing is to take extreme hygienic and sanitary measures,” he insisted.

It’s also important to remember to drive safely during the rainy season.

Given the health emergency caused by the coronavirus, local health authorities seek to mitigate the effect of other respiratory diseases in the country, to avoid the collapse of medical centers in Costa Rica.

To prevent an increase in influenza cases, Marin said the country will start a vaccination campaign and called on the population not to neglect healthy eating, especially at this time when many people are isolated in their homes.

“Hygiene should be the a, b, c of every day, in all the things we do, as well as eating well. We also wash our hands with soap and water for at least 20-30 seconds, use gel alcohol, social isolation if possible and teleworking,” said the doctor.
