June 6, 2020

Costa Rica confirmed 35 new cases of the coronavirus over the past day, totaling 1,263 cumulative known cases, the Health Ministry announced Saturday afternoon.

Six more people have recovered from COVID-19, leaving Costa Rica with 701 total recoveries and 552 known active cases.

Ten people have died after contracting the coronavirus. Nineteen people are hospitalized with COVID-19; three people are in intensive care.

Saturday marks three months since the first coronavirus case was confirmed in Costa Rica.

Testing numbers have not increased significantly

The recent increase in active coronavirus cases does not correspond with an increase in testing.

Since Costa Rica began reporting daily testing totals in mid-April, it has averaged 378 tests per day. The country has averaged 364 daily tests over the last five days.

Costa Rica has processed a total of 29,140 diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2 (387 more than Friday).

The Health Ministry conducts contact tracing, monitors high-risk regions and tests wastewater in some areas to help target testing.
