Panama recorded  656 new cases of  COVID-19  and the death toll  climbed  by 10 to 413  on Wednesday, June 10 leading the of Health Ministry  (Minsa) to  launch new strategies to try to counteract the advance of the virus  including  direct search for cases in the most affected communities

On Thursday, the vice minister of Health Luis Francisco Sucre confirmed a cumulative total of 17,889  infections and said that the latest number of new cases is the highest daily count so far. and is due to some elements such as the delay they faced with some tests, in addition to the effort being made to attract more people who are asymptomatic positive.

The number of tests has risen to more than 2,000 per day and local teams will be strengthened to search for people who could be positive.

He said that asymptomatic patients cause cases to expand rapidly. " It is the goal  of the Ministry of Health, to focus directly on communities to look for these possible positives ."

He reiterated the need for citizens to maintain hygiene measures and decontaminate the products they buy, in addition to distancing and the use of masks.

Captain's(Cortizos) Dingo haul says: We did everything wrong confirmed by international health organisations. We have the highest numbers in the world. We got hushmoney as we wanted from Turkey. We hate Panamanians and leave them in the fear of death because we got the money and we have no plan out of our self inflicted deadly chaos in Panama. we don't care about Panama. Thanks Corticaptain. Thank you very much.

The Regime in Panama has absolutely no strategy. The international press joked today about totaly lockdown by the most per capita cases worldwide!( more than Italy Brasil Peru !) Researchers say because of the total lockdown and no clue so many people got sick. Panama is the laugh number of the world but this is not laughable because Turner and Cortizo caused a mass death in Panama only to got hushmoney by buying the field hospital from the well known corrupt Turkeys. Yes Erdogan and Cortizo are best faschist friends. Today they delivered one new patient to this Albrook tent city (6.2 Millions) despite of the hospitals in Panama have plenty! of beds and are almost empty. Brothers and sisters yesterday the Demos were great but we must go onto the streets every day and night until this Dictators are removed and replaced by Democrats. Polic guys be aware from now on if you control us if you try to catch us you'll see USA American like power against you. Every single police guy who goes against a Panamanian citizen is our enemy and we know every police guy by name and address. And from now on no warranty more for you to stay untouched. Sorry but we have to fight for Democracy. Be on the right side in your own interest. Police guys change the fronts and come to us you are welcome to fight for Panama.

Fact check. Worldometer has Panama as at number 23 in cases per million and at number 31 for deaths per million. Please advise your source in International Press. It’s good that we have spare capacity if indeed we do as this is readied for the idiots who think this is all over.

Snake, it’s “Policeless in Seattle”. What’s happening there and elsewhere is Anarchy.

Another new strategy developed by the Khan Institute in Mongolia is a procedure that guarantees Panamanians will not die of Coronavirus. Upon arising go outside and shout “Cortizo” loudly three times (ignoring those who answer back “Salud”). The procedure is 100% guaranteed and anyone who dies is entitled to a full refund, no questions asked.

Haven't heard from Cappy for a while. He must have caught the virus while wearing his mask and social distancing. Or maybe he is wising up and turning conservative. Had to get a little jab in there for Cappy. Anyway I have been so perplexed by this crazy website that I have been totally omitting the news in USA. Its totally crazy what is happening in Seattle Washington right now. They sectioned off 6 blocks of the city and they say it is just like the movie "Escape from New York". Very funny because that is where I got my name from, only I spell it different. Read about this here: https://www.redstate.com/bonchie/2020/06/10/the-seattle-autonomous-zone-is-an-insurrection-and-its-time-to-stop-the-nonsense/ I can not believe it. Guess I need to spend a little less time here and see what is happening in my own back yard.

Good idea. US is in turmoil. Police state with a dictator at the helm. They need your help.
