H1N1 Flu Virus Count in Costa Rica
37: number of confirmed cases
2: number of probable cases
1,256: number of discarded cases
102: number of pending cases
Since Costa Rica received the equipment to test for the virus on its own, the number of cases has surged. In mid-May, Costa Rica was reporting eight confirmed cases. When the testing kits arrived in Costa Rica the week of May 18, many of the probable cases were confirmed.
The Health Ministry continues to recommend consistent hand washing and that people should report to the nearest medical center if experiencing increased fatigue, sore throats or elevated cold symptoms.
