The Ministry of Health cannot control every situation, for example, over 20 people decided to attend a baby shower and this resulted in 11 new cases of coronavirus, including the pregnant lady. These 12 are among the 69 new cases from Saturday.
This situation is not unique, unfortunately. On June 18, a similar tragedy occurred when 17 guests of a party in Alajuelita were infected with covid-19.
The Minister of Health made this announcement and a call for attention. He reminded us that everyone must take responsibility and collaborate in the midst of the very difficult situation caused by the pandemic.
The country has experienced a total of 2,127 cases of covid-19. 1,014 of them have already been recovered.
Because of scattered cases throughout Desamparados and cases in Alajuelita from the party, an orange alert has been established for these two cantons.
