                            On the other hand, the Government announced on Monday an alliance with the Specialized Higher Technical Institute (ITSE) and the Coursera platform so that 250,000 Panamanians affected by the pandemic can carry out 3,800 virtual courses and 400 specializations.

                            The Government distributes food bags and a 70 euros monthly bonus to a part of those affected by the pandemic, which will bring down the economy of Panama by at least 2% this year and will trigger unemployment and informality, which before the crises stood at 7.1% and 44.9%, respectively.

                            Panama divided its economic reopening into six blocks, two of which, involving fishing, internet sales, industry, banking and technical services, were activated on May 13 and June 1. EFE
