While this stamp was not issued to call attention to the current coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, some collectors and dealers are including it within this rapidly expanding topical. The design does NOT picture hand sanitizer in a person’s palms; the green shape is the outline of Costa Rica, symbolically held in caring hands.

The National Commission of Emergencies (Comisión Nacional de Emergencias, CNE) celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020.  The commission’s primary focus is to alert the public of impending natural disasters such as severe weather.
