Two More COVID-19 Cases Brings the Total to 7

Belize has confirmed seven cases of the deadly novel coronavirus so far. Two hundred and sixty-eight persons have been tested so far.  Patient four, fifty-five-year-old Hubert Pipersburgh, died from the virus on Sunday, while in the isolation unit at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The two new cases are both males and are also from San Ignacio. Patient six had contact with Pipersburgh and developed ‘minor signs and symptoms that included diarrhea and loss of sense of smell.’  This patient does not require medication and remains in self isolation at his residence in San Ignacio.  The seventh case, however, is hospitalized at the Western Health Region. Not much information is shared of patient seven, but according to the Ministry of Health, mapping exercises are currently underway for both cases.
