All the cruise ships now laid up with skeleton crews are free of virus and many of them were not even cleaned up. As noted the virus doesn’t sustain itself after a relatively short period on surfaces. Certainly I’m sure the hotels would be cleaned up anyway so this is unnecessary and ignorant scaremongering but is normal troll activity.

Some hotels are housing police and some are housing virus recipients. The hospital system in Panama is set up for outpatient service. In general Socialist health systems have a certain # of deaths that are anticipated, acceptable or are actually planned. For example wealthy people in Canada go to the USA to avoid the wait lists. Others get bumped to the next fiscal year as once the money runs out that's it no more service. Panama is not as advanced as Canada so expect even worse outcomes

My girlfriend tells me that recovering virus patients are be housed at the hard rock and that's a higher end hotel. I think right now the hotels just need money so they are all willing to accept the virus.

They will never post that list publically so anyone who stays at a hotel here in the future is going to be at risk. I doubt high end places like Riu or Trump Tower are being used. Might be worthwhile to start a thread on tripsadvisor to warn the public at large before they even decide to visit Panama.

I think Mr Brown is a little krass but makes an excellent point. I would like to know which hotels are packed with virus patients. It lived for months on cruise ships so these hotels are now biohazards. Tourists who fly in have a right to know!

I think a list of all the hotels that are being used to house virus patients should be made public. Does anyone really want to stay in a room that housed Covid patients for a year?
