  1. That statistic means absolutely nothing. More testing equals more positives. More testing in concentrated neighbourhoods where a case of covid has been found results in an even bigger skewed result.
  2. Hmmm, “get what you pay for”? Before I fired Cable Onda they were charging me $50 for 3 meg speed. Those with fiber were getting up to 100 meg or so for the same price, so I don’t see how that argument stands up.
  3. Only works if you can get fiber to your house. Many thousands of people don’t, so this is not universal.
  4. I think the government just said “haha, fooled ya” re lockdowns. It was clarified by Sucre last night that only weekend lockdowns apply to Chiriqui, Bocas and Colon. Rest of the week is normal. Shouldn’t be a problem.
  5. Without effect? Wonder how many could have been saved if these drugs had been made readily available?
  6. Again, this government has borrowed BILLIONS of dollars - perhaps they could use some of that money to provide such “necessities”? Oh, wait, they can’t even get food bags to all who need them.....
  7. 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
  8. I thought so too, Keith, but when I went to get my permissio there were actually 4 lines, each for something different. I was out of there after 15 mins
  9. Do we make it a thing now to frighten as many folks as possible? Life will kill you. The rest are just supporting actors.
  10. Alison, I didn’t mention road protests. I agree, this thing isn’t going away soon, if ever. So the decision is individual as to how much exposure you are willing to tolerate. While I will social distance and will GRUDGINGLY wear a mask, that’s it for me. I’m not going to live my life hiding from something I can’t control. There’s a ton of things out there that could kill you, heaven knows I’ve been close more than once, but I am determined to enjoy the rest of my life and not live in fear.
  11. Sorry Alison. Don't agree. If we accept that the incubation period for Covid is around 14 days, then the uptick in cases (seemingly starting the day after home arrest relaxation) cannot be a result of relaxation. As for Divila, I haven't been down there lately but I suspect the cases are concentrated in the farm worker shotgun shacks there - the ones without running water. Someone brought it in, then spread was easy. I no longer trust the stats we are being given by the government.
  12. Alison, more and more organizations are coming out and saying asymptomatic transmission is very Rare. Death rates are now pegged at around 0.2%. Methinks yet again, wolf has been cried when it was a mouse.
  13. Just sayin', but Boquete is the only place with these really stupid rules
