Panama cautious after day without COVID-19 deaths


PANAMA CITY (AP) — Panama has raised capacity on public transportation across the country, a day after celebrating the first day in 14 months without a COVID-19 death. The pause in COVID-19 deaths came despite a slight rise in confirmed infections that led to quarantines being imposed in two western provinces. Health Minister Luis Francisco Sucre announced Sunday that there were no new deaths to announce for the previous 24-hour period. The government urged people to continue to be cautious however. The government said Monday that buses could now operate at 80% capacity, but that riders would have to use face shields and masks. Panama has reported more than 370,000 confirmed infections and 6,296 COVID-19 deaths.
