The Costa Rican government has imported 676,455 vaccines against covid-19, of the four million doses purchased from Pfizer/BioNTech, to apply the treatment to two million people.

The eleventh shipment arrived last night at the Juan SantamarĂ­a International Airport in a DHL flight with 119,340 doses.

As of Tuesday, there are 18,771 active infected people in the country, according to the Ministry of Health.

So far, 312,425 doses have been applied. Reaching a national vaccination rate of 6.05 per 100 inhabitants, confirmed Social Security.

The country remains to finish inoculating Group-A of High Risk, which includes elderly folks living in nursing homes, nursing home employees, healthcare workers, members of the police force, firefighters and National Emergency Commission workers, among others.

As well as Group-B of High Risk, which includes people over the age of 58, regardless of whether or not they have any pre-existing health risk factors.

To receive the treatment, participants must have a Costa Rican ID or a residency ID, known as DIMEX specific for immigrants with resident status.

According to the ministry statistic provided on Tuesday, 2,908 deaths are listed as covid-19 related, approximately 1.4% death rate. Of these 1,084 are women and 1,824 men. The ages range from a 2-year-old to a 101-year-old.

The pandemic has killed more than 2.7 million people worldwide, according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering of Johns Hopkins University in the United States.
