By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Health (MOH) is calling on Belizeans to avoid non-essential travel outside of Belize.
The MOH through the Office of the Director of Health Services (ODHS) Facebook page, noted that the Phillip Goldson International Airport (PGIA) is now on its fourth day of reopening, but that there are still risks associated with travel.
“…we hereby remind all that we are not recommending travel unless it is for ESSENTIAL reasons,” the ODHS said. “We note that several travel warnings remain in effect across the region due to COVID-19 and some countries continue with increasing numbers.”
Worldometer reports that as of 5:00 p.m. today, Sunday, October 4, 2020, Mexico had 757,953 confirmed infections with over 78,000 deaths; Guatemala had 93,963 cases with 3,293 deaths; Honduras 78,788 cases with 2,399 deaths, and El Salvador had 29,450 cases with 863 deaths.
In light of those statistics, the MOH reemphasized to Belizeans to avoid travel unless “absolutely necessary.”
