So I guess 100 men shopping is OK or 100 women shopping is OK but not 50 men and 50 women. Stupid is what government officials dream up

Covid 19 is a fancy name for the flu. The mortality rate, at least here in Florida, is negligent; out of 100 who get the virus, less than two die, and most of those already had one foot and a leg in the grave! Stop the insanity by the pols and the control freaks. All they are doing is prolonging the misery and the economic devastation. Get rid of the fools before it is too late.

Simply astounding. Panama's problems cannot be solved by creating even more and greater problems. Do they actually believe that thrusting Panama even deeper into economic and social depression is going to cause less pain and suffering than the uncontrollable culling caused by the infection?
