This Monday, the Government announced that attention operations are headed to the towns of Upala.
In addition, an administrator was appointed for each of the 42 shelters set up by the National Emergency Commission (CNE), which give refuge to 5,363 people. The idea is to keep a tight control of donations.
President Luis Guillermo Solís said that 43 communities remain isolated due to fallen bridges or damage to the road infrastructure, but they received food and basic necessities.
Hurricane Otto left a trail of death and destruction in the country, after it touched the national territory last Thursday.
