Panama's President Nito Cortizo has announced that men and women will only be able to leave their homes on separate days as part of the country's measures to fight coronavirus.

The new restrictions mean women can go outside on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while men will be allowed out on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, Cortizo posted on Twitter on Monday.

"On Sundays, everyone will have to stay at home," he added.
