By BBN Staff: Director of Health Services, Marvin Manzanero informed via social media that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Manzanero said that he has been meticulous in taking care of himself.

“ I am very meticulous and careful about physical distancing and enforcing mask wearing at all times- double masks lately. Therefore I cant really say what happened but beyond being on the ground at flu clinics areas in Corozal a couple weeks and having had short 1 on 1 meetings with MOH staff, ( all precautions taken)  over the last couple of weeks not really aware of any real exposure beyond that,” Manzanero explained.

After experiencing minor symptoms on Friday, Manzanero says he got swabbed on Monday and his results returned positive for COVID-19.

He urged all Belizeans to not let their guard down and continue to adhere to all precautionary measures.
