After a weekend shower of complaints from business groups over inconsistencies in re-opening rules, President Cortizo, said Monday that he has asked the Health team that handles the Covid-19  to analyze the issue of the reopening of the beaches and the Sunday quarantine.

"If tourism is opening up, domestic flights, international flights, logic tells you: let's analyze Sundays, make decisions so that we can have coherence on the subject of tourism and health," said the president

Business sectors pointed out that within the reactivation on Monday, October 12 of the hotels several have the beaches as their main attraction.

On the general situation of the new coronavirus, once the reactivation of various economic sectors has occurred, the president reiterated that the cases are increasing and that part of the work to stop the virus is the Government, but that the population also has to contribute.

He said that they do not want to make decisions to return to quarantine restrictions because that would be fatal for the country.

Earlier, the administrator of the Panama Tourism Authority (ATP), Iván Eskildsen, commented that work is being done so that the reopening of the beaches will be  in a controlled way in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

"What you have to look for is how to achieve going to the beaches with family bubbles, avoiding crowds, ”said Eskildsen.

This coordination and evaluations are made with the Ministry of which said that for now access to the beaches is still suspended and that the decision to allow access will depend on how the numbers of cases of the new coronavirus are reflected. In the same way, the quarantine is maintained on Sundays.

Tourist activities are in the group of sectors that can operate from today and the ATP head reiterated that international communications have been had to give confidence to the traveler who wants to know that the airport and tourist activities are implementing all biosecurity measures.

When Trump loses, he will abuse the pardon power to let his tax evading campaign mgr out of Club Fed, and to proactively pardon his kids and maybe himself. He will face serious legal problems for years to come.

Cult-45 Kool-Aid chugging useful idiots make it a tough slog to read. The article is about opening the beaches and they start spewing babble about blue collar beginnings and business acumen. Do these folks think Dear Leader has done a great job with Covid-45? Talking about business..the orange dotard failed in Trump Airlines, Trump steaks, trump University, trump vodka, trump ´resort´ in Scotland, trump Panama, trump anything! He owes at least $300 million..to whom? Putin perhaps. Yeah, gotta agree with some sane folks on this thread; y´all trumpsters desperately need to get a life or go back to Alabama or Mississippi or whatever ¨shithole¨ place you came from.

What does Trump and Sinbad your stupid input have to do with the beaches and hotels here in Panama??? And you clowns that make comments about this country from your perch in the good ole U.S.ofA.?? One way or another whomever becomes the prexy of the U.S. you will still make off the wall comments about Panama without even a small bit of real data except what you believe, think or read. Get a real life in your supposed paradise now that trump is there.

sinbad...you're simply delusional. Blue collar background? $4 million seed money from his old man???? He's an icon alright. Mountains of bullshit piled on more mountains. Chicken-shit draft dodger, pathological liar and will be fitted an orange jump suit as soon as he is out of office. A real paragon of virtue and role model for your children. Who knows if he's beaten the virus? He received meds that no one else has. Born on third and acts like he hit a triple. All vine and no taters. What do your meaningless comments have to do with this story???

He's had a remarkable life it's true. He has good instincts and is a fighter but he's not a good politician. If he loses would that be so bad? He lives out his life as a former President with secret service protection for him and his family. I hope he wins but mostly I just hope he and his family stay safe from the hateful leftists.

Donald Trump love him or hate him has an Amazing life story. From blue collar beginnings in New York to becoming a billionaire. A real estate tycoon who parlayed his Alpha male personality into the hit show The Apprentice. After having his star placed on the famed hollywood sidewalk he turned his attention to the growing communist threat from the left. In 2016 he came down the golden stairs at Trump Tower and immediately the American people fell in love with him again. He bested the corrupt Clinton/ Obama machine to win the presidency. Now he has been struck by a Chinese plague that has killed millions his age worldwide. In True Trump fashion he not only beat the odds and survived but beat them in only 48 hours. Now we see him stronger than ever battling from behind against joe Biden which leads by 17 in some polls. Can Trump once again beat all the odds and win again? Win or lose he is an American Icon who has made his mark on history and demonstrated that in a Capitalistic America you can achieve anything.
