BREAKING: Corozal police officer catches COVID-19

Posted: Monday, August 3, 2020. 11:46 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Commissioner of Police Chester Williams confirmed that a police officer from Corozal, other particulars not known, has tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.

The officer is currently in hospital and several others who came into contact with the officer have been placed in quarantine pending testing. The officer’s prognosis is good according to Commissioner Williams.

This, in the four months since the start of the pandemic in Belize, is the first police officer to fall ill – something the Commissioner is thankful for considering the Police’s expanded duties along the borders to stop contraband and border jumping.

But even police officers are not immune from ignoring internal Department protocol and so the Commissioner hopes that they take the lesson.

On Tuesday the Commissioner will travel to the North and will be taking up personal protective equipment for officers. A second police vehicle will also be assigned in the area of San Victor, Corozal District to assist with stopping contraband and border jumping.
