Official figures already recognize that there are more than one million people infected with COVID-19 in the world. In Panama, the pandemic situation is causing a depletion of health personnel, especially in the intensive care units (ICU) of public hospitals. To the fatigue and stress of the personnel, it is necessary to add that the ICUs are close to their maximum capacity to attend patients and only several hundred ventilators to serve the demand.

 This information makes it clear that the only ones who can stop infections are ourselves. Each citizen who unnecessarily leaves their home, each person who fails to comply with sanitary regulations or who is diagnosed as a COVID-19 positive who breaks their quarantine is bringing other Panamanians closer to the abyss.

 There is no right to expect heroic doctors and nurses to care for us, even at the cost of their own health, if we do not help stop the spread. The best medicine is prevention. The way to end this pandemic is by assuming our individual responsibility. Complaints and tears will not correct our irresponsibility - LA PRENSA, Apl. 3

We the healthy people are the front line of fighting this disease by doing the smart behaviors that do not permit it to spread. The health workers are in the trenches actually trying to help people survive. By us following the procedures the government has required will help the health workers so they do not get overwhelmed or ill. Once we get the virus from not affecting anymore people we have to wait an additional 2-weeks before we can open up Panama to normal life. If we do not do this, it will take longer to accomplish. Finally, we need a cure ASAP to prevent this in the future.

If COVID-19 is a conspiracy, was the same true of the Spanish flu and ither pamdemics? If I were if a conspratorial mindset, I'd suspect ventillator companies.

I have to say I agree with Gordo! I do wonder what is behind this wayoverthetop to the Covid-19 virus. What is going on behind the scenes while everyone is worrying about getting sick and trying to cope with all the restrictions, and in many cases, worrying about where the next meal is coming from and how will they pay the rent?

This is a scam. The virus is real but the reaction to the virus is a hoax with an ulterior motive. This is a globalist power play to control the world. The U.N. is demanding a 10% global tax to fight this virus the invisible boogey man. People need to wake up and realize their way of life is being destroyed and it will never return back to normal.
