Sucre appeals to people to prevent a third wave of COVID-19 from worsening in Panama

Sucre appeals to people to prevent a third wave of COVID-19 from worsening in Panama

This week, Panama registered a day with more than 1,000 new cases of covid-19, a figure that had not occurred for months.
The Minister of Health of Panama, Luis Francisco Sucre, said this Friday that 90% of the new cases of covid-19 occur in family and friends gatherings, and affirmed that it is everyone's responsibility to avoid contagion so that the third wave in which the country is plunged does not get worse.

Sucre indicated that if the population continues with social activities and they forget the safety regulations, "we are sure to get infected and we will infect other people", and in this context he warned that already in the country "we are in the third wave".

However, Sucre indicated that at the moment there are no plans to "tighten" or establish restrictions on mobility, since this Sunday will be celebrated Father's Day, although he said that all this will depend on "maturity and civic responsibility."

This week, Panama registered a day with more than 1,000 new cases of covid-19, a figure that had not occurred for months, amid alerts about the arrival of a third pandemic wave.

In addition, the positivity for covid cases has exceeded 7.7%, above the 5% or less registered weeks ago and which denoted control of the pandemic.

Panama, a country of 4.28 million inhabitants, has already suffered two pandemic waves, for which the authorities have reintroduced restrictions on mobility, especially at night and on Sundays, in much of the national territory.

The Central American country is advancing with its vaccination process, and to date 1,396,100 doses have been applied against covid-19, both from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, its main supplier, and from AstraZeneca, the Ministry of Health (Minsa) reported.

With the advent of vaccines, there has been a "significant decrease" in the mortality of older adults between the ages of 60 and 80 years, groups that have already been immunized, and "no deaths" have been reported as a result of the application of the preparations, according to the Minsa.

Panama added 976 new cases of covid-19 and 7 deaths from the disease on Friday, one of them from a previous date not specified, to reach 392,166 confirmed infections and 6,465 deaths in more than a year of pandemic.

There are 468 hospitalized for the coronavirus in the ward and 76 in the Intensive Care Units (ICU), while 9,257 remain isolated at home and 413 in hotels, for a total of 10,214 active (contagious) cases.

13,320 tests were carried out on this day to detect covid cases, which yielded a positivity of 7.3%. Panama has so far applied 2,856,942 diagnostic tests.

The chicos put the spike protein on the covid19 virus to make it more deadly thus the name gain of function, now the vaccine companies want to put something in your body to get it to make spike proteins and your own ammune system will attack these spike proteins thus killing you. Go ahead take the experimental biological agent all it can do is kill you. I really do not care if you want to be the lab rat

Gee let's inject a spike protein into your body with this so called vaccine and then test if you have spike proteins in your body. Covid19 is not what is killing people, it is the spike protein the chicoms put on Covid to make it more deadly thus the term gain of function. Now the Vax companies are putting part of a spike protein in there shot so your body will make more spike protein. Then your body ammue system kills you trying to kill all the spike protein your body is making. Research the countries that have given the most jabs and you will see on the graphs that these are the countries with the 3rd wave growing. The jab is the 3rd wave. Stop being stupid and do some real research before you let anyone stick anything in YOUR body. Its not that hard if you have at least 2 working brain cells

Count more, get more. It´s that simple. By the way, a PCR test is neither a suitable means of diagnosis, nor is the PCR test useful in clinical medicine and therefore has never been approved. "This test is totally useless!" that's what the real experts say.
People who prescribe this test over and over again are ripe for psychological treatment.
