COVID-19 Cases Continue to Rise

COVID-19 cases are continuing to rise each day. Today, the Ministry of Health and Wellness confirmed that within the past twenty-four hours there were 172 new cases and 111 new recoveries. Unfortunately, another Belizean also lost the fight to the deadly virus bringing the total number of deaths to 678. The Ministry also noted that three persons were hospitalized due to COVID related complications. It’s a troubling situation that Chandra Nisbet Cansino, CEO of the KHMH, says has already led to an increase in admission to the hospital covid-19 unit. 

Chandra Nisbet Cansino, CEO, KHMH: “The number of positive cases are increasing. We are seeing a gradual increase in positive patients being admitted. I think yesterday we had three positive cases, thankful still at this time no critical cases. We still continue to have persons under investigation who are persons that would normally be admitted and have to wait until the result of their PCR test comes in before they can be moved to a non covid part of the hospital. So yes it’s concerning to us. It should be concerning to everyone and we hope that we can keep the critical cases and the deaths down to a minimum.”

To date, there are currently 1,214 active cases and 180 tests under investigation.
