Belize monitors 20 active cases of COVID-19

Posted: Saturday, July 25, 2020. 9:28 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Belize is currently monitoring 20 active cases of COVID-19.

Health authorities detected a new case on July 24, 2020.

The new patient is a family member of the 4 cases identified on July 23, 2020 so this makes a cluster of 5 total cases.

“The initial contact tracing for these cases has concluded and while the family acknowledges that they had been across the border in the month of June due to a family emergency, the link that we are following is a family member that lives on the Mexican side and who had continued to visit the family over the last weeks,” the Office of the Director of Health Services shared.

This family has been in virtual isolation since they returned from Mexico and there is no evidence that they left the isolated farm from where they were picked up.

The Ministry of Health says that there are no identified close contacts of them or any other family members that is considered as a highly suspect case.

The community has also not provided any further notes of possible contacts.

These last 5 cases are therefore a cluster linked to illegal crossings along the Orange Walk District.

The Orange Walk District now registers the highest number of total and active cases.

The public is advised to follow all preventative measures.
