“Unexpected behavior " during the Easter weekend when thousands of people traveled to the interior and to spas will likely lead to  a surge in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks.

Leonardo Labrador, head of epidemiology at the Ministry of Health (Minsa) , highlighted that there was “unexpected behavior in some places “and that is what will cause us some concern for at least two weeks from now”, the time of "incubation" of the virus.

Labrador, who gave the statements on TVN, was referring to some beach sites where people did not keep their distance of at least four meters as was the case of Isla Grande during this weekend.

In recent weeks, the cases of Covid-19 in Panama have been on the decline. According to Labrador, the percentage of positivity remains below 5%.

Meanwhile, the cases of hospitalized people also continue to decline.
