Panama is the latest country to offer a Kovid-19 test for passengers when they arrive at their main airport, a little less than a week after international flights resumed after a seven-month suspension due to an epidemic.
Sofia SARS antigen fluorescent immunoassay tests are to prevent the importation of new cases.
International flights resumed on Monday, October 12.
Since then, some 1,000 people had been tested, said Yelitza Campos, an advisor at Zoars Medical, an extortionist of tests in Panama.
A Panama health official said that out of the 20 people tested, one is positive for Kovid-19.
Rafaul Arab, manager of Tocomain International Airport in Panama City, said the test cost $ 50 for passengers who do not already have a negative test, which is less than 48 hours old.
Panama has recorded about 125,000 official cases and 2,500 deaths so far.
