What they going to call it? dodo beach? this isn't the boost of tourist, its the end of it. once they get on that beach and it has virus all over the sand and a few have to have legs and arms cut off from it, that word will spread like wild fire,, it won't be the city beach has it, it will be panama's beaches have it. sad... you know that the top 1000 rivers that dump trash into the oceans, Panama has 5 of those, pouring tons of trash into the ocean every year.
