By Aaron Humes: The nation is reeling from the deaths of twin doctors from Benque Viejo del Carmen Town, Cayo District, who died within hours of each other at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, both of complications from COVID-19. 

Doctors Kevin and Kenneth Guerra passed on Saturday and Sunday respectively, both at the age of 33.
