The fourth wave of Covid-19 should not stop the start of classes, in Panama as it has in several Latin American countries says former Minister of Education Miguel Ángel Cañizales,

He adds that in Chile, Cuba and Argentina they are at the forefront in this matter, where children are being successfully vaccinated.

"We in Panama cannot continue to harm the future of the nation that are our students," he stressed. It recognizes that there is fear and uncertainty, but it is necessary to give peace and tranquility to educators and the population with the coordination that the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education are having.

According to the former minister, Panama is a world leader in vaccination issues, which will help the education process to take place next March.

He argues that it is time for the whole of society to come together and allow students to return to class.
