By Aaron Humes: The Ministry of Health says it is investigating and closely monitoring three confirmed cases of Zika on Caye Caulker, based on an investigation of fever and rash cases reported earlier in June. 15-Zika-virus-657x404

This brings to five the number of confirmed cases of Zika in Belize since the first, a resident of Belize City’s north side, was reported a month ago.

Samples from the affected persons will be sent only for reporting purposes as Zika is confirmed to be in Belize.

The Ministry says it is now focusing on education about mosquito breeding sites and protecting women are pregnant or planning to get pregnant from exposure to Zika.

In the case of La Isla Carinosa, the community is being asked to assist the Ministry and local partners to clean up mosquito breeding sites, especially now that the rainy season has set in, in addition to the Ministry’s own efforts.
