ZIKA on a Tourism Angle

Yesterday the Ministry of Heath confirmed the first case of Zika in the country. Today the Belize Tourism Board has issued a release to stakeholders in the tourism industry. Love News spoke to Noriko Gamero, Marketing and Public Relations Manager at the BTB.

NORIKO GAMERO

“We are in constant collaboration with the Ministry of Health and we are getting updates of the initiatives that they are doing to address the Zika virus. At the moment we’ve been fortunate that the virus has not become widespread as only one case has been confirmed to date. Our concern remains the same to ensure that the travellers are aware of the information to stay protected and different measures to avoid Zika transmission so to do that we make sure that we are in constant communication with our stakeholders in providing such information.”

Gamero added that it is very important to keep in contact with stakeholders and to keep them updated for guests and tourists.

NORIKO GAMERO

“The main information that we’ve sent is the basic information to be aware of the Zika, how it’s spread, the symptoms, how to limit the spread of the virus and then we’ve also shared with them some kind of precautionary measures of things that they can implement at their different tours or hotels and how to make sure that travelers are safe.”

With the release sent to stakeholders such as hotels, BTB shared with us some of the precautions they have given to their partners.

NORIKO GAMERO

“The five things that we sent are the basic information and what Zika is, how the virus is spread, where the outbreak occurred in all the different countries where we’ve known of cases and why it is a concern now. The fifth one which we feel is the most important is how to limit the spread of the virus and some of the recommendations are just to stay informed of the situation that is happening in the country and in surrounding Caribbean countries, provide their workers with information on the Zika so they’ll know how to address it if they see any signs. We also suggested to consider placing insect repellent in the room or that they are available for purchase for guests. It’s just different recommendations that we’ve offered to limit the spread of the virus.”

The only confirmed case of the ZIka Virus is in Belize City.
