By Aaron Humes: Belize, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) benchmark, is well below 10 percent in terms of positive testing with just 18 cases identified.

Belize has spent as much as $6 million in supplies, according to CEO in the Ministry of Health Dr. George Gough, aided by a surplus in certain items noted in January.
Prices for ventilators, masks and cleaning products rose in the wake of some hoarding of goods internationally.
