So far this year, 127,678 migrants have arrived across the Darién Gap in the first 4 months of 2023 – and most of the migrants are from Venezuela, Haiti and Ecuador. The rest come from other countries such as Somalia, Cameroon, China, Afghanistan and India.

Just as a reminder that Covid-19 is still bubbling around in the background, the US has announced that it will lift mandatory vaccinations for foreign travellers arriving in the US on 11 May.

The start of the rainy season has already seen a drought of sorts (the rains have stopped again), and now the Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology of Panama (IMHPA) has issued a surveillance warning for the high level of UV-B radiation, which may be experienced until 5 May.

In other news, it is reported that authorities in Panama seized 32 tons of drugs between January and April, with the Caribbean province of Colón as one of the areas where the largest seizures were madE.
