Travel Bans placed to prohibit the spread of the Coronavirus

A Statutory Instrument was signed earlier today under the Immigration Regulations 2020.  The instrument refers to communicable diseases and prohibited immigrants.  With the coronavirus dubbed a communicable disease, the SI was drafted.  According to the SI, a person is rendered a prohibited immigrant and shall be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the Act, if that person is afflicted with the communicable disease prescribed under regulation 2 or if that person comes from or traveled to the People’s Republic of China in the last fourteen days prior to arriving in Belize.  Today’s signing of the SI follows a scare over the weekend when news began circulating on social media that there were persons on a flight at the Philip Goldson Airport suspected of having symptoms of the virus.  It was a scare that the Ministry of Health frowned upon as the details were not accurate.  According to the Director of Health Services, Dr. Marvin Manzanero there were no persons on the flight that was ill with the symptoms of the Coronavirus.  As a matter of fact, there were twelve Chinese nationals who came into Belize but eleven of them were denied entry due to immigration issues and not due to health concerns.  Neither of those twelve Chinese nationals was from the Wuhan Province nor did they have any epidemiological link.  Dr. Manzanero assures the public that the ministry remains alert of the situation and that there are no cases in Belize and no need for panic.
