Red flags as Panama on covid “dangerous plateau”

Door to door tests in covid hot spots

Panama  has been stuck on a plateau of an average of 650 new coronavirus cases a day  for more than four weeks, which is a "dangerous balance" in controlling the pandemic, during  the reopening of economic activities says public health specialist Jorge Luis Prosperi

In the epidemiological week that ended Saturday (from October 4 to 10) there were 5,013 new cases and 68 deaths. That represents an increase of 10% compared to the previous week when there were 4,545 new cases.

Meanwhile, the Health Ministry on Saturday reported an accumulated 119,666 cases of Covid-19 in Panama, of which 2 482 are deaths. In the previous 24 hours, 825 new infections and 8 deaths were reported.

Because the country is in a phase of opening up economic activities and, in some way, of making health measures more flexible. “So, it is clear that the possibility of massive infections among the participants and in their communities and families when they return home is very high. That is a red flag, ”Prosperi said.

He believes that although a fatality rate of 2.1% remains, research should be done to improve what to do in all lines of care that patients receive, from the moment they are detected as positive, passing through the hotels- hospitals, inpatient wards, and intensive care units.

Another alarm signal for the specialist reorts La Prensa is that this week the effective reproduction number (Rt) was estimated at 1.01. This figure is just slightly higher than the 1.0 that the country maintained, but it requires close monitoring, especially in the 50 townships that report an Rt greater than 1.0 and, therefore, have a greater risk of presenting

TC I agree with your comment. https://panatimes.com censors the majority of comments, which is virtually all. If you say nothing of substance, post nothing against the propaganda or nothing against the crimes happening you are allowed to post. Dare post a link or show facts that are contrary to the narrative they are pushing and you are deleted immediately or within 24 hours. All across the world News and major websites have censored the public discussions because people are educating one another. People are no longer taking by the shovel load the mindless covididiot propaganda being force fed that anybody with a keyboard, internet connection and brain can figure out quickly is fraudulent! When people speak up they are deleting as they are censoring in all social media too at the command of the WHO and UN. It is so bad across the world many news sites have simply shut down comments to totally create a blackout of everybody who descents as millions upon millions of people have had enough of all the lies, the fraud and endless fear propaganda based on fraudulent fake science that keeps being proven over and over it is fraudulent by hundreds of thousands of doctors and medical scientists who are also being silenced illegally. The global criminals are having a hard time controlling this fraud now across the planet as people march in the millions in Europe and all across the world people are standing up to this authoritarian tyrannical hellish nightmare and saying ENOUGH! People are not going to take this any longer and will be fighting soon to take back their freedom that has been stolen through medical tyranny. Everybody across the world needs to begin to stop listening to the lies and being ruled by illegal edicts that violate basic human rights. Question everything as everything has been based on endless lies from the start of this to the casedemic being used to lockdown under house imprisonment yet again, round 2! The casedemic has been going on for months but you cannot see a corresponding percent increase in deaths to match the rate of the new cases as you did when the coronavirus first hit. If you massively increase testing across the world, common sense dictates you will get more positives. But those positives must be questioned also as PCR tests are only 7% accurate with coronavirus per independent medical studies. So they are forcing all this testing when the PCR test show amplified fragments of coronavirus you could have as 80% of us have it from prior exposure to coronavirus colds. That is why 80% have T cell immunity but they are trying to hide this so they can force inject dangerous, untested, experimental vaccines that alter and change your DNA, extremely dangerous untested experiments upon global citizens. This will be PHASE II of the great crimes against humanity, if people are stupid enough to believe the endless lies. Doctors and medical scientests across the planet by the hundreds of thousands are coming out against all this fraud happening and sounding the warning bell but its up to people to listen to the highly trained professionals and not some WHO non doctor with criminal background. Read about The crimes of Tedros Adhanom, director general of the WHO. https://www.corvelva.it/en/approfondimenti/sistema-sanita/oms/i-crimini-di-tedros-adhanom-direttore-generale-dell-oms.html The more you use critical thinking the more the fraud and crimes become visible before you eyes. Read, study and spread to leaders as they have to be held accountable for their continued participation in these crimes against humanity. These are the crimes of our century we have both planned orchestrated genocide and crimes against humanity.

I would like to thank Newsroom Panama for publishing its readers’ comments. At one time Yahoo allowed comments but their articles were booed so much that they have “temporarily suspended” comments and their public has no opportunity to counter with contradictory information. They accept no dissent. But Newsroom Panama allow a real “liberal” discussion where everybody has a chance to have their say. Thank you.

The World Health Organisation has backflipped on its original COVID-19 stance after calling for world leaders to stop locking down their countries and economies. Dr. David Nabarro from the WHO appealed to world leaders yesterday, telling them to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method” of the coronavirus. He also claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved. “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said. https://www.news.com.au/world/coronavirus/global/coronavirus-who-backflips-on-virus-stance-by-condemning-lockdowns/news-story/f2188f2aebff1b7b291b297731c3da74

You self-righteous types are the bane of mankind. For every position you line up experts to support, I can find other experts to contradict them. It's the same old game. Grow up and realize that what you have is only your opinion.

casual observer brings zero to the crimes against humanity as is usual he cannot process fact or science. In fact, I would state based on his useless commentary he is a zero 10 digits right of the decimal! That is how much value he has brought forward with his purely useless statements. Now here is a real doctor who wears a mask as he is a neurosurgeon, so his scientific based findings obviously hold much more value than a CovidIdiot. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1--j-0UfXUM43SZVX2jy0AtlvDzPOM65-X8dbBpF3mOM/edit “The Anti-Mask Manifesto” by Dr. Matt Cucolo (A Science Based Guide Against Mandatory Mask Wear). NOW COVIDIDIOTS we all know you have assholes to spew waste out of so keep your useless opinions that hold zero value to yourself as you fail to bring any real value to what is happening other than proving you are brainless idiots who cannot conduct independent research, cannot review science and are brainwashed by the endless propaganda messaging they want you to believe. Take your dangerous experimental vaccine, please do. I have no issues with people like you taking a vaccine as I believe in freedom, I do have an issue with forced vaccination for a plandemicseries.com where 99.9997% of people survive with treatment, there is no need for a vaccine but again COVIDIOTS line up and inject yourself, it is fine. Now CovidIdiots go back to watching TV. Yes International Criminal Court trials should be conducted and all those found guilty for crimes against humanity need to be executed to prevent these egregious crimes from ever happening again against humanity. What is happening in the world is the most heinous crime of our century!

Brian has adequately covered the non-merits of mask wearing so I will instead deal with the psychological reason why some people comply with this mandate: thanks to world health authorities, local officials, fake science, and a complicit media, the narrative is one rooted in fear. And if that isn’t enough of a motivator, they push the narrative further by promoting the idea that mask wearing is to protect others principally and yourself secondarily. The narrative became : wear a mask to protect your grandmother from the virus; wear it to protect others. And if you don’t you are a selfish s.o.b. It has allowed “Karens” to proliferate and virtue-signal their caring nature. The other reason for willingly complying is a true fear of susceptibility in those who are overly cautious (risk averse). We can laugh at the Karens and those virtue signalers but we need to have empathy for those who have been manipulated into fear. Shame on those responsible!

Why has Panama & MINSA adopted a policy of harming its citizens and residents with a FORCED MASK WEARING POLICY that is NOT based on well-known science? This needs to be investigated immediately in light of the science proves the population is being harmed both short term and long-term with increased risk of cardiovascular failure and increased risk of cancer! In addition to both of those it is widely accepted that serious immune suppression is caused by a 20% decrease in oxygen, extremely high hazardous levels of CO2! The deadly consequences of mask wearing causes more harm if somebody is actually sick by the forced increase in viral load through re-circulation of the virus back into the body which further increases the individual risk of mortality! Finally,100% of people are being forced to wear masks are being put under pulmonary stress levels without medical testing of each person to insure they can sustain this addition dangerous pulmonary stress levels induced through forced mask wearing polices. This is a very dangerous situation that needs to be immediately addressed. 2400+ have died of coronavirus (most of the those deaths with early treatment as we know and the science dictates would have lived with early treatment) but now MINSA is subjecting 4,400,000 to a policy that is damaging the populations both healthy and the sick. The risks for all have increased exponentially greater than the risks of coronavirus.. Forced mask wearing is a very dangerous health risk and MINSA must immediately change this dangerous policy that will lead to much more future disease in the population and massive increases of disease and infections. We have a virus that globally has a mortality of 0.14% per WHO which is line with a flu. Isolate the old and those in high risk, the rest return to normal. We need to end the lunacy happening and return to normal immediately because more people are being seriously harmed than the coronavirus has harmed with all these policies including putting people into home imprisonment as was done and economic stress of people unable to provide for their families because of these policies that have not stopped death nor stopped the virus from spreading. We need to return to normal as none of what is going on is sustainable long term, nor based in accurate global science and is not good for the country or the people. Science across the world clearly indicates wearing masks does NOT STOP the spread of a micron virus such as coronavirus and science proves it harms people both short term and long term. So now Government policy is harming the entire population and setting up for serious long-term disease, more death and sickness. It is time to fix this extremely dangerous problem caused by this policy before even more people are seriously injured and die than have already. https://153news.net/watch_video.php?v=SY297HAS7HMW Occupational Professionals discuss the dangers of masks, the requirement for safety of workers that is required including specific ventilation systems as well as worker mandatory rest and oxygen cycles Panama is not administering for the workers. It is dangerous to have people wearing masks 8 to 10 hours per day as it is damaging their health. How many more people are going to die and get sick from the above complications created out of this forced mask policy that science shows to be wrong and very dangerous? This has to end. Here is the actual science that dictates masks do not work conclusively and in fact you will uncover the science how harmful they are to humanity to be wearing daily. Review of the Medical Literature Here are key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature that establishes that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness: Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009) “Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold among health care workers in Japan: A randomized controlled trial,” American Journal of Infection Control, Volume 37, Issue 5, 417 – 419. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19216002 N95-masked health-care workers (HCW) were significantly more likely to experience headaches. Face mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds. Cowling, B. et al. (2010) “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: A systematic review,” Epidemiology and Infection, 138(4), 449-456. https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/epidemiology-and-infection/article/face-masks-to-prevent-transmission-of-influenza-virus-a-systematic- review/64D368496EBDE0AFCC6639CCC9D8BC05 None of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H).

In the meta-analysis of the clinical studies, we found no significant difference between N95 respirators and surgical masks in associated risk of (a) laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, (b) influenza-like illness, or (c) reported work-place absenteeism.” Offeddu, V. et al.

“Infections, cases and deaths don’t define the pandemic, those who count and report the infections, cases and deaths define the pandemic.” At this stage, almost 9 months into an infection, why do most countries persist in the overtesting when PCR was NOT designed as a diagnostic tool due in part to its high false reporting and a test as sensitive as PCR could be picking up those exposed but not infected, effects from flu vaccines, common cold remnants (also a corona virus), and others? It should be used to confirm people showing symptoms or to validate they continue with the disease present or have shed the virus. But, no, the CDC, WHO, or whatever other organization involved want to perpetuate a pandemic for reasons we are all capable of surmising. Just this past week, as reported by off-guardian.org, the WHO slipped up and a truthism came out “ WHO (Accidentally) Confirms Covid is No More Dangerous Than Flu—Head of Health Emergencies Program “best estimates” put IFR at 0.14%”. If these IFR figures do not align with Panama’s, we’re doing something wrong. Isn’t it time to find out what? Consider this on mass testing: Japan and Taiwan rejected the mass testing craze, and they're fine. In fact, Harvard Medical School's Martin Kulldorff, an infectious disease epidemiologist, was pretty clear that far too much testing was being done, and that essentially it's a lot of white noise. Especially for college students, who he says should not be tested at all unless they're showing symptoms. Yet, inexplicably, someone is content to keep this as a pandemic instead of the “Casedemic” it has turned into. Something to be thankful for in Cocid-19, it seemed to have been curing the Flu—as cases of C-19 deaths go up, the Flu deaths have gone down worldwide. Strange coincidence!
