COVID-19 has claimed the life of National Border Service (Senafront), corporal, Abel Ábrego said Panama President Laurentino Cortizo on Twitter on Friday, April 3.
Earlier a National Police officer and a Fire Service major were listed among the victims of the virus which to date has infected nearly 1,500 people and caused 37 deaths.
The president said that Ábrego died "serving the country with honor in this fight against COVID-19."
Senafront and Air and Sea (Senan) personnel were called in last week to beef up police forces monitoring lockdown compliance and looting.
Mr President please allow looters ro be shot
