  2. Dear friends on Jaramillo-- We spoke to Jesus Quiel at the Junta Communal de Jaramillo a little while ago. He said that each day, he and the other volunteers, deliver 3 pickup loads of food bags to 1000 houses in the Jaramillo District--for approximately 6,000 people. The food bags contain rice, canned fish, dried beans, cooking oil, powdered milk, occasionally some chicken. NO fresh vegetables or meat. In the early days of the quarantine, many expats made donations of food and money to assist their efforts. In the past month, that has, he says, completely dried up. But, the need goes on. Working with Daniel Daves of the Global Food Network, Cloud Forest Botanicals pledges to donate, each week, at least 50 lbs. of fresh onions, carrots, potatoes, lettuce or cabbages. (Each 50 lb. bag costs between $20-$25). It's not enough for everyone, but it's a start. Can you help? If you want to donate $$, we will see that it goes to the purchase of fresh food -- Daniel Daves grows or buys direct from farmers at the best bulk prices. You can PM us to make arrangements. If you would rather do your own shopping, that is great. Just drop the food off at the Junta Communal on Jaramillo (near the Cabanas Mirador), any day 9 AM - 3 PM. Or, you can give to us directly on Wednesdays, 11-12 outside the Tika Bar and we will deliver it for you. If EVERYONE contributes, regularly, we can make a difference to our neighbors, who through absolutely no fault of their own, are hurting for food. Email us at info@cloudforestbotanicals.com or Whatsapp Elizabeth at 6636-8663 or Dianne at 6527-5584. Please forward this to others in our area--we don't have all the contact info. Remember the story of the Stone Soup? We can, together, make a difference.Thank you. Elizabeth and Dianne -- Cloud Forest Botanicals

  6. The U.S. Embassy has identified six upcoming humanitarian flights with seats available. The flights are operated by Copa Airlines (flights numbers CM4983 and CM4982), United Airlines (flight number UA2417), and Spirit Airlines (flight number NK6511). The flights are scheduled for July 8, 10, 14, 15, 17, and 20. There are no additional confirmed flights with available seats at this time, so if you desire to return to the United States, it is important to book immediately. Any traveler with the appropriate passport/visa to permit entry into the United States who wishes to depart Panama is eligible to purchase a ticket. Travelers should carefully plan their onward travel as hotel options in Dulles, Houston, and Ft. Lauderdale may be limited. Once in the United States, all domestic travel arrangements are the sole responsibility of the traveler. The Embassy is aware that the Government of Panama has approved in-bound flights from the United States to Panama to provide Panamanian citizens and other qualified travelers the opportunity to travel to Panama. Questions about qualifications necessary and approval for passengers on these flights should be directed to the Embassy of Panama, in Washington, D.C. Airlines operating these flights, such as Copa Airlines, may occasionally be able to offer seats on the out-bound flights to some passengers. Please contact the airline offering these seats for sale directly about those flights. The U.S. Embassy in Panama will continue announcing all flights approved by the Panamanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as humanitarian flights to the United States. NOTE – We encourage you to purchase your tickets as soon as possible to ensure you are able to return to the United States. U.S. citizens who choose not to depart on these flights should prepare to remain in Panama indefinitely and shelter in place.

Tocumen and Arraijan are jockeying for the dubious status of being the "hotspot" in Panama. Alto Boquete now reporting 15 confirmed cases, and Bajo Boquete remains at 4 cases. It appears now that Minsa records now incorporate the recent new case in Jaramillo. Note: No graphic representation for Bajo Boquete available. The "Chiriqui hotspot" of Nuevo Méjico/Divalá, which is just west of David, reporting 231 cases.
