In the United States, the tests for COVID has increased as they have increased in Panama. COVID has increased in the USA but the death rates have gone way down. Unfortunately, the media likes to make it sound as though there is a serious issue. There is NOT! Herd immunity is being built. In Panama, the Country continues to be on lockdown with everyone required to wear masks that can cause other health issues. Children from the age of 2yrs and up wearing a mask and not being allowed to play outside with others except for very short times. This is absolutely insane! In Canada, 80% of COVID deaths are in senior facilities. Some areas have mandated masks where there is barely a sign of COVID. Insane also.
