By Aaron Humes: Dr. Fernando Cuellar, an internist with Belize Medical Associates, is positive for COVID-19 and has been hospitalized, sources confirmed to Breaking Belize News.
Other reports suggest he has needed oxygen.
Dr. Cuellar has become a noted public advocate, dispensing medical advice on the frontlines of the pandemic from the beginning. More recently, he has sounded the alarm on the second and third waves of the pandemic potentially getting out of hand if corrective action was not taken by the Government and public.
We here at BBN send our wishes for a successful recovery.
