(English translation of the above)

What should I do about the first case of COVID-19 in Panama?

Remain calm and inform yourself via our official reports.
Follow these preventive methods:
* The protocols for coughing and sneezing, and frequent washing of hands;
* Avoid hand shaking, embracing or kissing;
* If you have respiratory symptoms don’t go to crowded places.

Follow our recommendations and inform yourself at @MinsaPma

To everyone he reiterates a call for special attention to sanitary measures and to follow the instruction of the Health Ministry, which is the only institution that’s authorized to give official information.)
