Seems good news there is a move towards lifting masks, hopefully they're done away with in a few months.
How is the sentiment toward mandating the vaccine in Panama? Are there any coercion tactics being applied(mandatory in essential/frontline work, mandatory for customer interaction, mandatory for increased 'liberty' etc)?

Panama followed the People's Republic of China 'health' mandates. When these shenanigans began in March 2020, the first thing the govt. did was call the Chinese, and they followed their recommendations to the letter. Now, I've lived in Asia for several years. Only people who were sick with the flu wore masks. The healthy certainly never did So, this was another thing yet. To the govt: of Panama, and to the Minsa: Sres, basta ya de tonterías. (Pls. stop these shenanigans). Las mascarillas no sirven para nada, y menos para prevenir este o cualquier virus. [Facemasks are useless to stop this or any virus). Eso sí, han servido para ampliar los cofres del gobierno con los $1000 dólares de multa que han cobrado. (Of course, they did fatten government coffers thanks to the USD 1000 you levied for not wearing them). Por favor, ya es suficiente. Paren esta locura. Las mascarillas son además anti-sanitarias y pésimas para el medio ambiente del cual aparentemente se olvidaron. (Please -- enough is enough. This is total insanity. Facemasks are also unsanitary and they're terrible for the environment, which you've obviously forgotten about).

Maybe the (scientists) from Minsa should take a puff from a cigarette and then put on a mask and exhale. If you see smoke either coming around the edges or through the mask itself that means the so called virus will do the same as it is smaller than cigarette smoke particles. So wearing a mask is all about control and nothing to do with the china flu

There was never a valid reason to walk around with a mask on your face. Unless you were planning a bank robbery or you wanted to celebrate Carnival.
