After infections were reported by the Microbiology Laboratory of the National Children’s Hospital (HNN), this confirmation was similar to that of experts at the Costa Rican Institute of Research and Teaching in Nutrition and Health (Incense).
Francisco Duarte, co-ordinator of the Incense Genomics Laboratory, noted that there are two Costa Ricans, and the first 28-year-old aloe vera resident reported fever, colds, coughs and myalgia (muscle pain).
The second case was a 32-year-old woman from Heredia who was given a cold, cough, headache, taste disorders and myalgia.
Dwarte said the World Health Organization is concerned about the circulation of the Brazilian variant as it relates to more proliferation and restructuring cases.
About two months ago, three cases of the identified variant were identified in South Africa and one that appeared in the United Kingdom to determine a total of 17 related variants of SARS CoV-2 that caused COV-19.
To date, Costa Rica’s genetic monitoring system, integrated by Incense, and the participation of the University of Costa Rica and HNN have received more than 380 genes for the SARS-CoV-2 corona virus.
