The Minister of Health of Panama (Minsa), Luis Francisco Sucre, reported that the possibility of advancing the date of reopening of restaurants in the country is being evaluated, before the date established in the gradual and asymmetric economic reopening plan that is on February 15.
In the Face to Face program, Sucre
said that for the re-evaluation of the opening plan they are “based on the current numbers of cases (of COVID
-19). We have been improving, despite the criticism, we have a positivity that is decreasing quite quickly and even the death toll”.
added that they have held meetings with representatives of restaurant chains in order to evaluate the reopening of that sector, since it has been one of the most "hit by the pandemic."
Members of the Association of Restaurants, Bars and Clubs of Panama (Arbyd), have asked the Government to allow the opening of commercial premises this February 1.
