  4. This magnificent estate residence is perfectly located in Panamonte Estates, the small residential gated community development in downtown Boquete, Panama. Nestled in a lovely enclave, it is a short walk to the restaurants, bars, shops, amenities, parks and fun of downtown Boquete. There are two adjacent sections of Panamonte Estates; each with its own gated entrance. This house is in the private section with just a few homes. It sits on a large lot for its location. The property of well over 1/2 an acre is graced by lovely tropical gardens and a small, full year mountain stream providing a wonderful water feature. The house itself is... https://www.casasolution.com/listing/magnificent-estate-house-with-mountain-stream-for-sale-in-panamonte-estates-downtown-boquete-panama/ To go directly to more information, a more complete description and up-to-date pricing on this property, please visit our web site for this property at the link above.

  5. Don't let down your guard. It's easy to slip...REAL easy. I see my unmasked husband talking within 3 ft of the unmasked yard guys and I go ballistic. It's tough...but we all have to help each other remain careful. ( he hates it as we women are such nags...but he always thanks me...sorta)
  6. Alto Boquete now has eight new cases, Bajo Boquete has three active cases, plus a fatality. Los Naranjos has five active cases, one requiring hospitalization. Active cases in David are now 369. Puerto Armuelles is up to 90. The MINSA website added over 1000 cases on Sunday and the number of active cases nationwide is approaching 20,000. I would show the screen grabs but I don't have the time today.
  7. The US Embassy has identified 10 upcoming humanitarian flights with seats available. The flights are operated by Copa Airlines (flight numbers CM4963, CM4974, CM4957, CM4955, and CM4982), United Airlines (both flights are number UA2417), and Spirit Airlines (all flights are number NK6511). The flights are scheduled for July 9, 10, 14, 15, 17, and 20. Copa Airlines cancelled their July 8 flight to Dulles, VA. 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.

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.

  9. Jim.....I agree. Besides following protection protocols to prevent COVID infection, I firmly believe the BEST move each one of us can make right now is focusing on the improvement of our personal health in every regard: diet, exercise, reduce or stop drinking/smoking, some vitamin supplementation. It's a win-win all the way around. Bottom line?...it can't hurt Alison,nurse
  10. I believe it is reasonable to expect more posts of this kind. The degree of malnutrition of the Panamanian population has been massively increased due to the shutdown of the economy. Confinement has reduced vitamin D production, and wearing of masks negatively affected the blood saturation levels of oxygen and CO2. Widespread stress in addition to those physiological damages. All of which weaken the individual and collective immune systems. Measles, mumps, scarlet fever, even smallpox are some of the words that may return to the daily vocabulary.

  12. Moderator comment: This article is being posted as an exception to CL policy. The implications of a much more serious plague on top of the coronavirus pandemic is mind-staggering. Hopefully this one known case can be isolated and neutralized. https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/06/asia/china-mongolia-bubonic-plague-intl-hnk-scli-scn/index.html
  13. One word “solyndra”. Haven’t seen a large solar or wind installation that hasn’t relied on substantial govt. Investment, after the investment goes away, the installations shut down

  15. As of late Monday, July 6th, 2020 - 38,149 cases, 747 deaths, 17,986 recoveries. 144,918 Covid-19 tests administered to date. Tocumen and Arraijan are jockeying for the dubious status of being the "hotspot" in Panama. The numbers keep going up daily. Alto Boquete now reporting 18 confirmed cases. It is not clear about the numbers for Bajo Boquete and Los Naranjos areas because those statistics simply are not made available to us via the Minsa website. It appears that there is a threshold of 15 cases before it displays a case load. The "Chiriqui hotspot" of Nuevo Méjico/Divalá, which is just west of David, reporting 236 cases.
