Panama has 4,393,339 residents and Costa Rica has 5,747,995 residents.
If - as Minsa proudly announced - 23.4% more people are vaccinated against Covid in Panama than in Costa Rica, why then in Panama, out of around 1.5 million fewer inhabitants, 7,046 died of the virus and in Costa Rica "only" 5,431 ???
That is around 30% more deaths in Panama. ...the answer is blowing in the wind.
