Oh ya, I had the same thought. If people don't like the measures taken by this government than there is a possibility to get a flight....oh wait. Maybe there is a repatriation flight out ,not sure.... so there is still a chance or not. Can't say. In that case, sit out the ride and when it's over feel free to go back. Looking at Europe and the US, this will go on for a long time. And for most countries measures to avoid wide spreading came in most cases to late.

Captain: study history. The government is NEVER there to keep you safe. The government is always there to maintain complete control and ownership of the people.

Captain: they can cook the numbers in many different ways to mislead the public. First because testing is limited, only those with severe symptoms get tested. Those with mild symptoms and recover never get tested and are not added to the positive list. Therefore the mortality rate is artificially skewed higher than it actually is. Secondly the people who die aren't necessarily dying because of covid-19. They died and tested positive and are automatically added to the covid-19 death column. Since we are nearing the peak spread and total world deaths due to covid-19 currently stands at 41,000, this number is not anywhere near the 500K deaths caused by a severe seasonal flu according to World Health Organization. The sensationalism and hype over this virus is overblown and in my opinion being used as a cover to destroy the economy and strip people of their freedoms. By destroying the economy central bankers are called upon for bailout money which leads to massive debt and interest paid by tax payers. Banks win big. Pharmas will soon be rolling out drugs and vaccines and cash in big also. And finally our freedoms have been taken away to quash any type of protest or uprising. The hammer has fallen and the global elitists have shown their hand.

Seasonal flu mortality rate is some 0.1 % . Covid rate is not yet known but is at least ten times higher by current evaluations of 1.0%. In some calculations it’s was as high as 3.4% but this is considered an aberration. New England Journal of medicine likened it more to 1.4%. Even at 1.0% it is as noted 10 times more fatal than seasonal flu. Gordo please check your maths. This government is doing its best to keep us safe. Misinformation is dangerous. Follow the rules and don’t post false data.

Covid-19 will ultimately have a mortality rate similar to the seasonal flu (250K-500K annually). Keeping this into perspective the severe draconian measures taken by our governments are highly suspect and should be investigaged. To crash the economy and place every citizen on house arrest... something big is going on in the world above and beyond the virus. All countries are following the same directive. There is a global initiative that has been put into place. Be very careful accepting and promoting the wishes of these evil directors. They are manipulating the people through fear and panic. Of course we must comply or be arrested, but at least recognize that what is happening in the world today is an evil agenda perpetrated by global elites.

This Gov provokes a real war in Panama. Totaly unfit and paid by the criminal WHO. Is there anybody in Panama to withstand this insanity. Who believes that further investments will be done here in the country. It's against the international carta of human rights and Cortizo must held accountable for that. This means jail. Cortizo your people in the country needs water medications and food do you take any notice about ????
