According to last night’s report by the Ministry of Health, Panama’s numbers have risen to 291,285 with 4,651 deaths. Although the infection rate has decreased in the two largest provinces, Panama and Panama Oeste, the interior status has increased.
The government changed the nightly curfew from 7:00 pm – 5:00 am to 9:00 pm – 4:00 am effective tonight. The weekend quarantines will remain for now. In the Panama and Panama Oeste, where Panama City and the largest beach communities are located, the weekend lockdown is similar to the others where deliveries are still active and exempt business can remain open. In several interior provinces, Herrera, Cocle, Los Santos, and Veraguas (ONQ headquarter location), the weekend quarantines are more strict. No businesses can open, and no mobility or deliveries are permitted during the weekend. Monday through Friday, Panama and Panama Oeste will no longer be restricted to the two hours according to ID, but the days will remain gender-specific. Women can be out Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and Men on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The first shipment of the vaccine is scheduled to arrive next week and will be administered first to healthcare workers, national security forces, and people with disabilities. The government has announced a revised schedule of business openings from today through March 15.
