By BBN Staff: Is Belize losing the battle with COVID-19? In the last 7 days, the country has recorded 7 deaths including our first pediatric death.

So far, fifty-three people in Belize have lost their lives to COVID-19.

On Thursday, October 22, there had been 46 recorded deaths associated with COVID-19. Then on Friday, October 23, a male patient in his 70s who had been on dialysis and tested positive for the virus passed away.

There were 2 deaths reported on October 24, a male patient from Orange Walk. He was in his 70s and had been on ventilation support. Some minutes after the infographic was published, the Ministry noted that Belize had recorded its first pediatric death – a 6-year-old child from Orange Walk.

On October 25, Belize recorded the 50th death associated with COVID-19. The male patient died at the Northern Regional Hospital. He was in his 80s.

Another male patient in his 70s from Orange Walk died on October 26.

The latest infographic issued last night indicated the death of a 38-year-old male patient of Guinea Grass, Orange Walk.  The diagnosis was made post mortem.

This morning, former PUP Minister, Ainslie Leslie died due to COVID-19 related complications. Leslie’s death brings the total number of COVID-19 related deaths to 53.

With 53 deaths of 3,261 confirmed cases of the virus, Belize’s fatality rate has edged up to 1.63%.

There are currently 1,133 are active cases.

As the Ministry of Health continues to conduct testing and mapping exercises, the surge of cases continues to increase.

With impending elections, the health officials and police are introducing new protocols for voters and party supporters hoping that there is not another surge following the election.
