Belize Telemedia employee passes away due to COVID-19

Posted: Tuesday, August 17, 2021. 9:20 pm CST.

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize Telemedia employee Angel Alpuche died because of complications due to COVID-19 on Monday.

With Alpuche, the number of people who have died in Belize since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic is now at 345. His death was not reported in the Monday statistics since he died after the tally of deaths is put together by the Ministry of Health for publishing.

The Belize Communications Workers’ Union (BCWU) said on Facebook that the organization was grieving the loss of one of their very own.

“He will be missed for his witty, outspoken, and loving behaviour, all who have come in contact with him can vouch for this,” said the BCWU.

“Fly high with the angels “Pooch”, we will surely miss you!!”

Alpuche, who had been hospitalized at the Intensive Care Unit for more than a week, had reportedly been vaccinated with the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
