The Vice Minister of Health, Luis Francisco Sucre, reminded that from 5:00 pm, on Saturday, June 13 to 5:00 am, on Monday, June 15, the curfew will be in effect for Panama, West Panama and San Miguelito.
Sucre said that in the sectors where the Rt (effective reproductive number of cases or average value of the contagion rate) is greater than 1, Health personnel have been reinforced, who are going from house to house find people infected with Covid-19, and thus give them the necessary treatment and isolate them to avoid further infections.
He added that this Friday, the Health Minister, Rosario Turner, met with the regional health directors of Panamá Metro, Panamá Norte, San Miguelito and Panamá Oeste, areas where the majority of active and accumulated cases of coronavirus are. They were given 15,000 rapid tests to detect the virus, the results of which are obtained in 15 to 30 minutes.
