PRESS RELEASE

Mapping Exercises Identify Three New Cases of COVID-19

Belmopan. April 11, 2020. 9:50 a.m.

The Ministry of Health continues its enhanced surveillance activities and mapping exercises as it aims to contain further cases of COVID-19. The initial mapping exercise in Belize City and the processing of further samples from the case in Corozal have identified three more cases of COVID-19.

Two of the new cases are in Corozal and one is in Belize City; all these cases are close contacts of already identified cases. These cases were swabbed as part of the mapping exercises, and all were asymptomatic and are in self-isolation at home.

Thus far, results for front line workers from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, and those at the Belize Health Care Partners Limited, are negative for COVID-19. However, there are test results still pending.

The public is encouraged to continue practicing social distancing, avoid being in public spaces unless it is absolutely necessary, and when doing so, practice proper hygiene.
