Apede: "To close again is the last nail in the coffin of the country's economy"

Definitively burying the country's economy is what the business sector fears in the face of the "constant threats" from the authorities, about the possibility of a new closure, in the face of the increase in coronavirus cases.
To close again is to put the last nail in the coffin of the country's economy. To close is not an option because, in addition, it is the social stability of all citizens ... It is not under threat that the community is going to behave, said the president of the Panamanian Association of Business Executives (Apede), Elisa Suárez .

She added that the situation in the country is not good, and that from a health point of view it was known and understood that there was going to be a regrowth once economic activities were reopened, however, we must agree and work hand in hand.

It cannot be only the economic variable or only the health one, because we are going to pay the consequences in the country of not making these decisions jointly, she said on the Sunday Open Debate program, broadcast on Telemetro, channel 13.

Regarding the threats of restriction of mobility or total quarantines, he considers that the human being reacts the opposite when he is scolded and that fear is not the way to communicate.

We have been in this for months, we are not small children. He who does not want to follow the health instructions, then assume the consequences, you no longer have to be telling me, you have to, she said.

Suarez stated that what we should be afraid of is what will happen to us if things are not done properly, not taking care of ourselves and contaminating others and the country's economy.

In recent weeks there has been a significant increase in cases. Given this, the authorities have warned that the country could return to mobility restrictions, depending on the number of cases per sector.

Oh ya 3 year ago
As we can see in the news from around the world the people are finally saying NO. If Panama locks down again every person in the country should just say NO. The cops and governments can not arrest the entire population. Tell the ones at high risk to protect themselves a d let the rest carry on. Panama maybe needs to sent some doctors to Thailand as they have virtually no deaths and see what they seem to be doing right
