Message to the KHMH ICU specialists: Dr. Hidalgo and Dr. Arriaga

The views expressed in this article are those of the writer and not necessarily those of Breaking Belize News.

By Bernard Bulwer: 1. To my knowledge, you are the only two adult ICU/Critical Care specialists in Belize (at least back in my time).

2. So I assume that you are rightly advising the KHMH and the MOH about the KHMH’s capacity, or more accurately–its incapacity to handle the challenges of critical care of Covid-19 patients in-house at the KHMH.

3. Additionally, you and I know, especially as you both have international experience and training, that the KHMH lacks both the infrastructure and resources–including staffing requirments– to handle Covid-19 based on international recommended standards (without the need to spell this out here).

4. BECAUSE, I assume, that you two specialists will be on the frontlines of this fight, and that you, your staff, and the entire KHMH, are being forced to take the greatest personal risks, I AM ASKING THAT YOU TAKE THE LEAD IN DISPELLING THE RECKLESS CLAIM BY BELIZEAN AUTHORITIES that isolation and care of Covid-19 can be responsiblly done at the KHMH.

5. WHAT IS SO HARD about such care being based at the Cleopatra White HC (or other available facility) for such potential Covid-19 patients?

6. … PLUS ASKING FOR ADDITIONAL MANPOWER on the ground from international experts who know about Covid-19 care…from Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea … people who have been there, done that?

We are not living in the Dark Ages.
It is clear to all who want to see, the devastating consequences of Covid-19 on first-world industrial countries.

PLEASE TELL THE AUTHORITIES THE TRUTH, because even though we wish that the virus never reaches Belize, it is better to be safe, than to speak from the grave.

IF this sounds deadly serious … It’s because it is!
