A suspected case of Corona Virus in Quintana Roo

As new cases of the corona virus are showing up around the world, there are still no confirmed cases in Belize. Health authorities, however, warn that it is a matter of when since the virus is spreading rapidly. In the neighbouring state of Quintana Roo, the Health Secretary Alejandra Aguirre Crespo has confirmed to the media that they are monitoring a suspected case of the COVID 19. While the specific area was not disclosed it is said to be in the northern part of Quintana Roo. Aguirre Crespo also explained that cases are monitored when the individual has travelled to places where the virus has been detected and has had contact with infected persons in the past two weeks. The official also said there is no need for panic. There are one thousand five hundred health professionals who are trained to manage any crisis, she said.
