While Covid-19 is apparently easing, the Ministry of Health of Panama said that since the start of 2023, 180 cases of dengue were reported throughout the country. it says that 155 cases were without warning signs; 25 had warning signs; but that (thankfully) there were zero cases of severe dengue and no deaths have been reported. Mind you, from a personal point of view, the most cases (41) were in the Panama City metropolitan area (and this is the dry season, the peak for mosquitos is probably the start of the rainy season in March/April).
Nevertheless, if I were one the reported 21,596 irregular migrants that have arrived in the province of Darién so far this year, coming from neighboring Colombia, I would be worried.
