San Pedro Patients Recovering from COVID-19

Marvin Manzanero

Tonight, Belize has three confirmed cases of COVID-19.  The first was confirmed on Sunday, March twenty-second.  The patient is a thirty-eight-year-old Belizean female, who is currently in self isolation in San Pedro Town.  She arrived in Belize on Thursday, March nineteenth from Los Angeles. The patient’s mother was later infected, prompting the government to extend San Pedro’s State of Emergency for thirty days. No new cases have emerged from San Pedro as yet and according to Director of Health Services Doctor Marvin Manzanero both patients are recovering.

“The other two cases are doing very well. Actually the mom seems to be doing better than the index case in the sense of having no signs or symptoms. The other contacts, immediate contacts of these two first cases are also asymptomatic.”
