Panama is going to suffer greatly. There is nothing anyone can do to stop the spread of the virus. We must learn to live with the virus and fight through it the best we can.. Living in quarantine will not solve the problem, it will only cause more death, more poverty, more domestic violence, child sexual abuse, and mental health issues. NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES/CHICAGO (Reuters) - From apple packing houses in Washington state to farm workers in Florida and a California county known as “the world’s salad bowl,” outbreaks of the novel coronavirus are emerging at U.S. fruit and vegetable farms and packing plants.A rising number of sick farm and packing house workers comes after thousands of meat plant employees contracted the virus and could lead to more labor shortages and a fresh wave of disruption to U.S. food production. More problems are coming!

I also found it very strange that all of a sudden these cases were discovered, all across Panama. How did that happen? Minsa must have truck loads of doctors administering tests. Any one know what their capabilities actually are. I think this needs looking into.

All that testing gave them the results they wanted. The test is the virus since it has been declared to be invalid by the person that developed it Kary Mullis. “PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome. The problem is the test is known not to work. It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analysed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery. Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.” And this has also been the advice of the World Health Organization. Do not use for Clinical testing. With the limited data now available, WHO does not currently recommend the use of antigen-detecting rapid diagnostic tests for patient care, although research into their performance and potential diagnostic utility is highly encouraged. https://www.who.int/news-room/commentaries/detail/advice-on-the-use-of-point-of-care-immunodiagnostic-tests-for-covid-19 It is very apparent that MINSA is intent on keeping the lockdown in place at any cost to the people of Panama.

Absolutely fake numbers. Turner must have these numbers not to loose their upcoming several trials. There are no signs of mor cases. An if even the hushmoney field hospital for 6.2 millions is right in place. Cortizo want to close the country the next 4 to 5 years to install the Dictatorship. He has no military help so he must put you Panamaians asleep to overtake the country. Where is this guy ?

Maybe your government could organize a rescue flight for you and you can take your whining back to the high IQ paradise you come from and give the rest of us a rest.

OK now this has gotten ridiculous. They send people house to house door to door testing and testing people that aren't sick or maybe a case of the sniffles. then they find all these asymptomatic people and add them to their case totals declare there are too many cases and put us all back in quarantine again. you people see how this works? you think this shit is gonna end before a vaccine is circulated? We see the game now and it ain't pretty. what a way to have to live!
