RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Panama is the latest country to offer travelers a COVID-19 test when they arrive at its main airport, a little less than a week after resuming international flights following a seven-month suspension due to the pandemic.
The Sofia SARS Antigen Fluorescent Immunoassay tests are meant to prevent the importation of new cases at a time when parts of Europe and the United States are seeing a resurgence.
International flights to and from Panama, a regional transportation hub, resumed last Monday, Oct 12. Since then, some 1,000 people were tested, according to Jers Medical . . .
