Some 12 medical and scientific societies in the country have developed a guide for the management and treatment of patients with coronavirus , said Julio Sandoval, a member of the government commission in charge of treating the disease crisis reports La Prensa

Sandoval stressed that the document is "important", because doctors reached a consensus. "That means that 12 medical societies of different specialties, such as the infectologist, pulmonologist, internist, neurologist, intensivist, anesthesiologist, among others, met and produced a guide to save the greatest number of patients," he said.

He stressed that unlike other countries, in Panama the guide was prepared jointly.

He said d that patients with coronavirus have various conditions, so it is valuable that these guidelines reflect in a multidisciplinary way what each specialist thinks to provide the correct care.

The guidelines are endorsed by the Ministry of Health and are used in hospitals with positive patients.

My prediction is that Panama's prison system will see a death rate of 40% due to the lack of water and extremely poor hygiene. The state does not provide any toiletries and water is not free flowing 24/7. Let's see if I am proved wrong...
