Belize Records one hundred seventy-six new cases of COVID-19

More challenges tonight on the COVID-19 front: Belize adds another one hundred seventy-six new cases taking the number of active cases close to the fifteen-hundred mark. With the two COVID-19 related fatalities, the death toll attributed to the coronavirus stands at three hundred eighty-five. Equally troubling is that there are three hundred eighteen samples under investigation. Of the new cases reported today, seventy-nine were in the Belize District, sixty of which were in Belize City. Forty-two cases were tallied in the Cayo District, six of which were in Valley of Peace and five in Teakettle. The municipalities of Belmopan, San Ignacio/Santa Elena and Benque recorded thirteen cases combined. Orange Walk reported twenty-five new cases while Stann Creek tallied eleven. On the far ends of the country, sixteen cases altogether were reported in Corozal and Toledo. Meanwhile, in the face of increasing vaccine hesitancy and resistance, more than one hundred seventy-six thousand people have received at least the first COVID-19 shot and just over eighty-one thousand are believed to be fully vaccinated.
