"If the population does not follow the instructions, we  are going to take the measures back to where we do not want to go,"  said Panama Health Minister Rosario Turner Turner said while handing out masks During a tour of Curundú, one of the areas  with  the biggest pockets of coronavirus

She said that there are 23 districts in with the largest number of Covid-19 cases. "We are fighting the virus. Be part of this great battle, actively, following the instructions of the Ministry. We can have all kinds of differences, including policies, but on this issue, it is a matter of country, of nation, and we can manage to do it differently, ” she said.

“I repeat again the first two blocks [towards the new normal are not the opening of the country but a measure of balance between health, economic and social aspects," Turner said.

Having more cases of the virus is not a bad thing. As pointed out by numerous posters it's nothing more than a flu bug for the average person. They write these articles to imply a new case equals a new death and that's not true. There are people at risk like debilitated people in nursing homes that's why democrat governors in places like New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania should be facing murder charges for putting covid patients into nursing homes. Tens of thousands dead at the hands of these mass murderers. Other deaths include the obese, sick, drug addicts etc... Minsa is setting back the clock in Panama so they can keep their power. Once the virus goes away so does minsa's powers, so they want to set the clock back. We currently are in the wet season with heavy rain and that is also our flu season so this virus will spread, much to the delight of the power hungry. Old fat gringos hide inside thiscvirus was built for you, not for me I am one of the chosen in great health.

To read these comments gives me reason to move out and deal with people that can think and follow instructions by the health authorities. You all think that you are brilliant but only to the people surrounding you and yourselves. A suggestion is to change your friends and put your ego into your back pocket and follow the instructions that are given to us by the ones in the know about these things, if you know so much why are you not setting the rules instead of writing into a local rag. In the 15 years that I have lived in Panama, I have yet to find only a handful of people that have a thought worthy of my ear and I have just read the comments of 3 more.

In an authoritarian society the state treats people like children. It scolds us: “If the population does not follow the instructions, we are going to take the measures back to where we do not want to go”. In a free country our health is up to us. The State may force a sick person into quarantine, but those of us who are healthy are free and no laws can be imposed that have not been debated in our congress and approved by our elected representatives. We should refuse to give away that right for any reason, including to people with white coats and stethoscopes, because it may never come back.

In other countries in the world were the facial masks are required to be outside, their virus infections are less. Panama's virus cases, even though it has only affected 1% of the population that we know of, is two times better than the U.S. because of the restrictions. But we have to find a happy medium between freedoms, the economy and our health until we find a cure. Therefore, I wear a mask in public to protect you, please wear a mask to protect me until this passes. I just concentrate on taking deeper breaths. Do not be willfully ignorant to common sense science. We are all in this together.

So all indicators are that masks are largely symbolic and, if anything, not good for the immune system of the wearer, the virus is mostly if not always communicable by human to human spray and not surface contact, the lockdowns are proving to be unnecessary at best and counter-productive at worst, and the death rate is .26% which is far below original estimates and not really all that lethal compared to other flu viruses and diseases not to mention the fact that there are a lot of other causes of sickness and death that nobody is suggesting that we shut down the world's economies for. This thing is going to have to run its course and no amount of draconian measures and hiding are going to change that. The People need to tell their governments to fuck off and get on with their lives.
