PANAMA CITY, Panama, Tues. Nov 3, 2020 (Reuters) – Panama’s President Laurentino Cortizo has began self-isolating after a close co-worker tested positive for the coronavirus, the presidency said on Monday, without revealing the name or position of the person who was infected.

Cortizo has taken two coronavirus tests, which were both negative, but will continue isolating “until he repeats the tests in a few days”, the presidency said on Twitter.

Panama on Monday added 738 new COVId-19 cases to move to 134,336. The death toll is now 2,706.
