OPINION: Hospital crisis seeks leadership

 
476Views 7Comments Posted 28/06/2020

The country's public and private hospitals are working at full capacity. At this point, it is necessary to have an additional availability of hospital space, to appropriately serve the patients of the Covid-19, without neglecting the other hospitalized. Government spokesmen have indicated the possibility of temporarily conditioning the Atlapa Convention Center or the Ciudad de la Salud project, as new hospital facilities. These plans need more visibility and the collaboration of different sectors to carry them out. The donation offered by a Chinese contractor to convert the Amador convention center into a 1,500-bed hospital echo in the distance. While the weight of past and recent political decisions haunts the management of the President of the Republic, It is evident that each day the population has adopted its own rhythm of openness or lack of confinement, which already goes beyond the few checkpoints and the limited sanitary controls. The country needs leadership and clarity on critical decisions, which those who want to be protagonists must assume with full responsibility. - LA PRENSA, June 28

BITNG THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU. You re so right Oh ya. But unfortunately, it seems that only Gringos access this site. On the other hand, comparing Panama's Health Care to the one in the US, makes them feel good. Here's my 2 cents worth: I do not see many Panameans going to other countries for medical tourism and cheaper medications. Meanwhile LOTS of Americans are coming to Panama, Costa Rica and Columbia for medical care and, lo and behold, also going to Canada for cheaper prescriptions. Does that compute to a better Health Care? By the way, they should do a bit of Internet research to find out where the US rank globally on that score. They might finally get educated.

Chele we are waiting for the kung flu vaccine Panama is going to produce. Panama a country with and average IQ in the low 80's certainly is on the cusp. Oh wait what contribution to the world has Panama ever made? Everything they have is from the mind of someone else and made by someone else. Even the Canal was a gift to Panama. Yes Chele Panama is going to be the savior of the world.....NOT!

@chele. What you smokin? The US has top notch healthcare. It is way overpriced though. If Panama wants leadership they should have taken the help offered by Trump admin instead of selling their soul to China. Stupid! My 5 year old niece could provide better leadership than they have presently.

" It is evident that each day the population has adopted its own rhythm of openness or lack of confinement" People are tired of being locked up for 5 months and know there is no end in sight. The total failure of socialized medicine is on full display. It's easier to blame the population for getting sick than to admit the crummy 3rd world healthcare system sucks.
