(MENAFN- Newsroom Panama) Figures issued by the Ministry of Health of Panama on Saturday, January 30, listed 1,222 deaths from Covid -19 in January which makes it the deadliest month since the pandemic began.
The majority of the victims from January 9 to January 23 belong to the over 60 age range, according to figures from the World Health Organization and details that more than 2,500 people over the age of 60 have not been able to overcome the virus.
The covid-19 pandemic has become one of the most challenging events for the world, not only from the point of view of the countries' response capacity to control the infection and its consequences for health but also for the ability to face the social consequences as a result of the public health measures that are implemented to minimize transmission.
The crisis in the control of the disease left the provinces of Panama and Panama Oeste and moved to the interior regions of the country. Although Panama continues to report a decrease in pandemic figures with a drop in the daily number of deaths, as well as in cases and its consequent percentage of positivity, January will be the month with the most deaths.
