Moves towards reopening the Panama economy could be delayed  if  Panamanians and foreigners continue to flout the quarantine regulation to combat the COVID-19 pandemic said deputy health minister Luis Francisco Sucre. Sucre on Saturday. May 2.

The warning came  as the accumulated cases of the virus in Panama surged to

7,090  with  197 deaths and 89 patients  in intensive care.

"The quarantine is being violated,so the health system calls for compliance with the established provisions to decrease the transmission rate  (RT),"said  Sucre.

" We are not achieving the objectives required for this stage , so we must stay at home. If we do not achieve better results, the decision will have to be postponed. as we continue to face families and the country  with constant exposure," said Sucre.

My name is Valary West.I'm from Canada, My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behaviour from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through I am very happy today with my family.

Captain, I agree 100% with your feedback. This is Panama thank god, not USA. Panamanians are peace loving people, not violent gun rioting nuts. 😊👍

Quite a lot of misleading comments this morning but will do my best to correct the ill informed. Case count is meaningless says Dark Pools with which I tend to agree. We do indeed need far more testing ...and until we get our testing up to Korean standards we will not get out of this. Having said the tests are meaningless he then goes on to use them in his maths. The low death rate is being counted against the population under lock down conditions. Imagine what they would be like under open conditions ! Claire , Panamanians compliant ( I am one ) you must be joking ...there are law breakers ..hundreds of them out on the streets daily breaching quarantine. That’s why we are being warned it may be necessary to extend the lockdown. Thanks to those of you by the way encouraging this behaviour. Vaccinations are not toxic. Smallpox was eradicated thanks to a global vaccination programme so stop spreading that falsehood. There is no truth that the flu vaccination will cause you to be more likely to get Covid 19. Please explain where you saw this nonsense. Neither would a vaccination when and if found be likely to cause what it was guarding against to become more deadly. The virus at the moment is showing no indication that it is mutating. Even if it did it would be no different to other viruses where the let’s say annual shot is adjusted to compensate for such mutation. There have indeed been protests against lockdowns in the Us but they are isolated and you are being somewhat influenced by media hyping them. Take a look at Italy where there were no protests as the population abided by the lockdown measures under very difficult circumstances. Unfortunately the US citizenry are not showing the same level of discipline and the death rate will correspond to this sad situation

Mr. President, I’m so glad you don’t listen to all these low educated opinions, if you did we all would be in the same hopeless situation as the USA, (They are repeating the same mistake they did in the past with the Spanish flu). USA is the country that has the most deaths and done the worst in the whole world fighting this virus. Please do not listen to all the uneducated feelings and feedback you are getting from mostly US citizens. Please, just continue to follow the smart advice of doctors and other experts instead. Please keep op the good decisions you are making and good job you are doing. Thank you Mr. President👍👍👍

== people who have had the flu vaccination are MORE likely to get Covid-19 == Factcheck.org states there is No Evidence That Flu Shot Increases Risk of COVID-19. https://www.factcheck.org/2020/04/no-evidence-that-flu-shot-increases-risk-of-covid-19/

Dark Pools of Soros is exactly correct. Now the imbecile president threatens to extend the lock-down (imprisonment). Panamanians are culturally more "compliant" and willing to "follow orders" than Americans, but many are reaching the point of desperation...no work, no money, no food for them, their children, their animals. Panamanians will line up for "vaccinations," which are toxic and contribute to health problems. Did anyone else read that people who have had the flu vaccination are MORE likely to get Covid-19? And that a Covid-19 vaccine, when "available," will render the mutated virus much more deadly? (And the virus WILL mutate.) Meanwhile, the president ignores the fact that walks in the fresh air and sunshine are beneficial for health in general. Crime is on the rise as is domestic violence and suicides (no doubt added to the Covid-19 count) because of the lock-down. And lock-downs prevent herd immunity, which will render the next epidemic/pandemic much more deadly. I've seen videos of massive lock-down protests in the US with non-mask-wearing people in big crowds. No "social distancing." They aren't coming down with Covid-19.

Case count is meaningless, as not everyone is tested. They can make that higher or lower as they see fit. The FACT is that in a country of 4,300,000 FOUR MILLION, THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND, less than 200 have died. 0.00004 of the population. For this, Panama economy and it's people are being destroyed.
