    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) –Last Friday, two people suspected of having the Chikungunya virus have been confirmed by health authorities this morning that the results yielded one positive and one negative.

    These two people had traveled to Dominican Republic.

    The Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Maria Esther Anchía also stressed that this is an imported case, it is a tourist from France.

    “We’re taking this as the first confirmed case in the country, which we believe to be incubating when the disease that came to enter Costa Rica. We received a report from France; her symptoms began on May 27 and the PCR result was positive,” noted Dr. Mary Ethel Trejos, director of Health Surveillance.

    The woman was admitted on May 10 and left on the 21 the same month and was traveling through Tortuguero, Quepos, and San Jose. Spraying was done in these places.

    Moreover, coordination with the Chamber of Tourism was held to alert about the situation.

    The sick lady came with her mother, rented a 4 × 4 vehicle and made solo tours, so other people are probably not in danger. Still, the health authorities coordinated actions with the Costa Rican Social Security as well.

    The previous week had reported a total of eight suspected cases from around the country.

    Due to this situation, health authorities again made a call to the people to now more than ever to increase preventive measures, such as eliminating breeding sites of the mosquito that transmits dengue.

    Chikungunya is a more aggressive virus than dengue fever and aches that persist for more than 10 months in the patient. Since February, the country had received warnings from the Pan American Health Organization about the possibility of the virus entering.
