Nicaragua responds to the COVID-19 Pandemic

NSCAG News | on: Thursday, 2 April 2020

As at the end of March, there were three confirmed cases of coronavirus in Nicaragua. One person out of the three has died due to complications from COVID-19 and another 14 people were under observation but had so far tested negative for the virus.*

Until now, Nicaragua has been successful in preventing the virus from spreading, largely due to a public health system which offers free, universal health services based on community-focussed preventative care.
