Medical wastes showing up on Pacific Playa Potrero

Expats report that needles and vials of blood have turned up on Playa Potrero in Guanacaste.  The trash is presumed to be medical waste that was disposed of improperly.

The Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas received a report, and expats hope the agency will be able to determine from where the material originated.

Such needles and blood can spread infections and other ills.
