By BBN Staff: In today’s Ask the Experts, Director of Health Services, Dr. Marvin Manzanero was the bearer of more bad news regarding the spread of COVID-19 as Belizeans appear to have let down their guard in recent weeks. Manzanero revealed that 8 frontline workers, including 3 police officers, 3 doctors and 2 nurses have tested positive for COVID-19. However, Manzanero said that it appears the majority did not get it while in the line of duty.
Director of Epidemiology Dr. Russell Manzanero confirmed that the total number of COVID-10 cases is now at 114 cases: 54 females and 60 males. 32 cases are recovered and 80 are active, of which Orange Walk has 29 active cases, Corozal 15 and most of the rest in Ambergris Caye.
Community spread in San Pedro is now confirmed and surveillance in Ambergris Caye, Orange Walk and Corozal districts continues.
Belize’s health personnel are advising that if you are showing symptoms, even if you are not a direct contact, stay home and call 0-800-664-2273 to report to the Ministry your symptoms and receive counseling.
