            "The number of cases, the seriously ill and the deceased, are going to increase. The call is to not make irresponsible driving if we let go at this time, what is going to happen is that people are going to become seriously ill. Let's do the physical distancing and social, these are key weeks. It sounds like we have repeated it many times, but we have to do it, "said Salas.

            The minister also expressed his concern that the weekend is approaching, and called on people to continue with the distancing, coughing and sneezing protocols, as well as constantly washing their hands.

            The authorities of the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS) indicated that they have implemented a strategy under three approaches, first trying a minimum occupation, reconversion of the service to increase beds, and expansion using out-of-hospital facilities.

            "All this effort will not work if people do not pay attention, the measures are implemented so that there is no peak that collapses the health centers. In this scenario, a feeling of collaboration must arise, but the best grain of sand is to take care of yourself and stay at home, so that the system can give them timely attention, "Quesada said.

            Costa Rican authorities also indicated that five private laboratories were authorized to carry out the test for COVID-19, which are added to state hospitals, as well as to the Costa Rican Institute for Research and Teaching in Nutrition and Health.

            Costa Rica keeps its borders closed for the entry of foreigners, suspending the school year and massive events, and ordered the closure of places such as bars, discos, parks, national parks, beaches, among others, as a preventive measure.
