By BBN Staff: The Office of the Director of Health Services has now informed that they have identified 4 new cases of COVID-19.
These 4 cases are related to the previously identified 3 cases yesterday and all 7 members of this family remain at the quarantine center in Orange Walk.
One person displayed minor signs and symptoms and was seen at the hospital yesterday but has not warranted in hospital treatment.
All 7 cases were identified as persons who had been crossing the border into Mexico illegally and the contact tracing/mapping exercise for all these cases is currently ongoing.
The Ministry of Health said that today’s initial exercise has identified further potential cases in the community of Blue Creek and that exercise will continue into this weekend given the identification of this particular cluster.
This identification of cases in persons who have been crossing the border illegally, underscores the importance and relevance of ‘ALL OF COMMUNITY’ approach in any successful COVID-19 intervention.
Belize now has 37 cases with 15 active cases, 9 of them being in Orange Walk.
The Ministry urges everyone to avoid crowded area, practice social distancing, wear a mask and report any illegal crossings that you know.
