Snake pliskin is a prime example of white ignorance. You ignore a problem so it does not exist. Very trumpian. I am sure "some of your best friends are black". And you don't "see colour" so you just can't be a racist!! Racism is borne out of fear and ignorance, both characteristics which smallminded fools like sp and jbb demonstrate everytime they contribite to this forum. Prime examples of american exceptionalism that allows them to rise everyday convinced of their superiority....a superiority conditioned solely on seeing a white face in the mirror each morning. You desparately cling to that false sense as you see you fragile world crumbling around you. Quite like the orange dotard who everyday demonstrates the absolute worst of white mindset. He sees it falling apart too, but his infinite narcisism would never allow him to admit it. And you sp, with your bottomless pit of self hate and envy of the black man, can do nothing but spew your vile and misguided pronouncements. Yes I said envy. Because you only wish you could have the spirit and soul of the black man, who after centuries of bearing the abuse and persecution by people like you, still only seek equality, not revenge. Think yourself very very lucky for that.

Ajd & sral seem to be the most hateful pieces of trash around here. You actually think this has anything to do with race or racists. Like I have said before, Only the true racists make this stuff a racist thing. If you are talking about race in the first place, then YOU are promoting racism. Its just like the racist protesters in the US, Trying to make the killing of George Floyd a racist thing. It was a cop that killed a person...PERIOD. Why do I not hear about all the reverse order killings or white on white or black on black? It is very simple. It is because the media wants to promote racism and fools like ajd and sral are not intelligent enough to see that. They just buy into it because some rich, good looking news caster says it. Ya'll just blind, ignorant and stupid. Can't see the forest through the trees.

Sad that Panamá attracted so many trumpian, white-trash ´expats´ who bitch and moan and whine incessantly. The good news takeaway from the commentary section of this site is that many of the American exceptionalist misfits are leaving PTY or have already bailed and just keep bitching from CONUS.

Jbb you surely are one sad sick puppy. Very trumplike! I have always been of the opinion that little men like you and the orange dotard, when you saw that the majority of the people dying were black and latino, you thought " let the virus spread, only possible democrats and people of colour". I said once before and I will repeat it for assinine and racists fools like you....america will only change when people like you die, for your sake peacefully at home in your bed as you dribble all over your pillow. You won't be around to see that your grandkids will look like a latino or beautiful black person. You see, white people in america are so so like you...consumed by fear....that you are no longer making babies. Ststistics prove it! So while blacks and latinos are dying, they are also making lots of beautifuls babies...daily. So dwell in your sick world of anger and hate and hope that you die so you don't have to watch your world change right in front of your bigoted small and sick eyes. Sad fool you are!! You and the ignoramus leading america to doom deserve what is coming. And IT IS COMING!!!!

Wenny wouldn't know anything about IQ if it hit her in the head. Maybe the cops going door to door are spreading this crap around. They should practice what they preach and stay home like everyone else. Same with government officials. Stay home like you impose on the people that you are supposed to represent.

JB there could be something to what you are saying. These idiots could end up killing their parents who are the ones that feed and house them. Parasites that kill the host.

Wearing a facial mask in public is not a political statement. It is an IQ test. Do not be willfully ignorant to common sense science. Also, the COVID-19 is not a political issue, it is a National/World Health Issue. Panama cannot go into a bigger recession. Yes, their curfew needs to be less restrictive but the people need to help by staying home when they can, wearing a mask in public, keeping their hands and keeping their physical distance.washed. The problem in Panama is the culture. So many people have to use public transportation. Europe is knocking their virus curve down. So can but everybody has to be smart about their actions so we protect each other.

The virus in the United States is hitting mostly large urban areas full of Democrats. Even in Red States like Texas that is having a big outbreak the news is not all bad. For example Houston and it's surrounding area is seeing a big jump in cases but it's mostly the ghetto dweller obama voters that Bush bused in after Katrina. Then look at red state Florida. The highest case outbreaks and deaths are in Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach again heavy democrat areas. Now Michigan where Detroit has the most deaths. These are States where just a few thousand or even a few hundred votes determine Trumps reelection. These areas have already seen thousands of dead democrats with new outbreaks forming. People not living in democrat controlled hell holes and in red states enjoy freedom and health. We should start to see some liberal hell holes like Minneapolis, Portland and Philadelphia among others see new outbreaks after the democrats rioted for weeks and burned their own communities. Many of these rioters are too young to die from the virus but they can serve as the vehicle to bring it back into democrat homes and take out the communist voters who are older and usually do vote. A lot of good can happen between now and November keep the faith!

So what does all this testing prove? The virus has already spread and it would seem to be all over Panama. Some get sick, others not. Some are at higher risk because of preexisting conditions. Wouldn't it be better to use health resources for treatment rather than to continue testing? If you cannot stop the spread you are wasting valuable time, money and resources. The continuous damage being done to the country and it's people for no good reason will be your heritage.

Stupid does, Stupid gets. There must be an acceptable combination of social distancing/masks, controlled opening of business with some exceptions (SUX2B a bar owner), and enforcement. Or, y'all can move to Texas.

For the first time ever, I agree with jbb. It has been hell to pay for this unenviable distinction. This virus is bad!!! But Panamanians must understand something else. It will get worse unless people smarten up...and likely will in fact get worse even if people smarten up. There is so much about this disease that is still unknown. So even all the hype about a vaccine soon is most likely laughable at best. Look at the US. That situation worsens daily. The crisis that country faces is unfathomable and the usual "american exceptionalism" is seeing it totally and completely mismanaged, by many in the public who ignore it and by the government and humpty trumpty who has no idea how to not transactionalize it to benefit himself. Just cannot be done. Think 1918 and prepare as best you can for what is coming. I am not a pessimist, just a realist. Globally this pandemic is far from over and people need to realize that. Safeguard your families as best you can. Socially distance as best you can. Always wear a mask and see the ignorance of so many for what it is...a death warrant in this time of great uncertainty. Don't look to our north nor our south. Look within and protect yourselves sensibly from this pandemic. Listen up!!

Panama has won the Central American world cup equivalent of Covid. Of course as Kid pointed out there was hell to pay for that honor .

Day late and a dollar short newsroom, brown posted this story earlier. Now that Panama has the distinction of being the worst managed Covid country in the region we have no hope of anything opening back up. Already the enraged PRD has rounded up 500 people to make an example of. Happy I'm not one of them I can only imagine what is happening to them in the bowels of a panamanian jail.
