By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Health (MOH) says that over 770 people came to Belize during the first five days of the re-opening of the Philip Goldson International Airport (PGIA).
The MOH’s data said that from Thursday, October 1, to Monday, October 5, 776 people came to Belize through the PGIA. The breakdown of passengers by day of arrival is as follows: Thursday- 73, Friday- 220, Saturday-218, Sunday-192, and Monday-73.
“The majority of these persons are actually Belizeans coming back home,” explained Dr. Marvin Manzanero, director of Health Services with the MOH.
Manzanero said that out of the 776 persons that came into the country a total of 372 were screened at the airport with an SD biosensor test and some of those people were randomly PCR tested.
“Out of all those persons tested, we did have one person that turned out positive,” Manzanero added. “That person was picked up on Sunday via the rapid test that has been confirmed by the PCR platform. So that person remains under quarantine at a hotel in Belize City.”
