Health Minister Michel Chebat said that he joins with the Ministry staff and all Belizeans is wishing Dr. Manzanero and all others battling COVID-19 a speedy and safe recovery.
“COVID-19 knows no boundaries and remaining vigilant is essential. Even as every possible precaution is taken, there is still a risk. Belizeans, therefore, have a collective responsibility to each other to follow all guidelines from the Ministry of Health and Wellness,” the MOHW said.
The Ministry also called on the public to continue proper mask-wearing, frequent hand washing and sanitization, avoid social gatherings, and practice physical distancing to stop the spread of the virus.
