By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Health informed that it has detected a new case of COVID-19 out of 3 samples processed today. This new COVID-19 case is from Belize City.
It was not intended to run a specific set of samples today as the Ministry stated that they focused on “the extraction process and preparation of samples in order to process a significant amount tomorrow, Monday, August 10th”. According to the Ministry the total number of samples pending to be processed is now close to 300.
Health officials are now monitoring 120 active COVID-19 cases in Belize. On the positive side, the patient that had been hospitalized yesterday was discharged today.
The COVID-19 update sent out a short while ago notes that “contact tracing continued through the weekend and the 3 actives clusters out of San Pedro continue to be monitored”.
The Ministry is appealing to the community to continue to remain alert and stop the stigmatization that seems to be growing against the persons from communities that have an identified positive case. The advice that any person we meet is a potential positive case was again repeated.
Stay safe all.
