Herd immunity takes around 70% of the population to be infected. That means another\\\\
3 million at say 1000 a day .....quite a while yet circa 8 years ?
I feel our Gov’t may have something else in mind for Panama and I am not liking what I see which is not a Democratic Society. It seems they are keeping us down so they can gain greater control over the population. Keep them sacred and keep them hungry. These Decrees are making me think that we headed into a Dictatorship under the control of some mindless politicians who are drunk with power.
It would seem that Panama very likely has achieved herd immunity. When you test someone that was infected and recovered you get a positive. The testing has now become meaningless statistics. All of the attempts to prevent the spread have not had much effect if any. So let us see what new mandate the so called experts come up with now. More of the same is insanity. And the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
The long term effects of Covid-19 are not yet know, herd immunity at this stage would not be the smartest move for the government. Even people who were asymptomatic have be shown to have damage to their lungs.
Let's get these numbers up so we can get on with herd immunity. Once enough people have had it and recover the virus will flatten and numbers will fall dramatically. The fat diabetics and alcoholic chain smoking gringos better stay inside though. Why should normal people be locked up to protect the people who abused their bodies with bad habits? Why are 95% paying for the sins of the 5%? Unless of course this has nothing to do with a virus!
Tell that to Mr Duran.
