More positive tests for Influenza A H1N1

Story PictureThe number of confirmed cases of Influenza A H1N1 in Belize has almost tripled in the past days. Of the fifteen samples sent to CAREC in Trinidad and Tobago from the Corozal Free Zone, results for ten came in last Friday. Nine of those tests are positive, bringing the total confirmed cases to fourteen. Nineteen more samples, coming from Corozal, Cayo, Belmopan and Belize District, were sent to CAREC between Wednesday and Friday of last week. The latest set of results was a part of the same batch as the first five cases that were confirmed at the Free Zone. With the additional samples sent to Trinidad, there are now twenty-four cases pending. Health officials maintain there is no need for panic and that the situation is being monitored.
