Also, Panama’s Health authorities reported that the number of coronavirus covid-19 infections rose to 8 – one of them in intensive care – and that there are 66 suspicious cases. On Monday, Panama announced the first case, a 40-year-old woman who returned to the country from Madrid.

Turner said the victim was a school principal where two teachers tested positive for covid-19. In view of that situation,  authorities suspended classes at that campus and others from Central Panama, North Panama and the suburb of San Miguelito until April 7.

The government ordered the suspension of all massive events, including fairs and sports activities.

The minister said that the majority of those infected are “without respiratory distress” and remain at home.

In the region, Mexico (7), Costa Rica (13) and Panama (8) have confirmed cases of the coronavirus covid-19.
