COVID-19 patient number eight, fifty-year-old land inspector Ramsley Gillett, remains hospitalized tonight.  Gillett tested positive for COVID-19 on April seventh and is currently in the isolation area of the Corozal Community Hospital. The experts say that he is not on a ventilator. Before his condition was confirmed, Gillett was referred by a private facility twice and was tested on Tuesday. Director of Health Services, Dr. Marvin Manzanero provided an update.

“Patient number eight, the one we reported on was apparently without oxygen, fever and tiredness which is part of what has been described in the literature. That patient is being monitored in Corozal. He still remains hospitalized. Are there any recoveries yet? We can only say you have recovered if you have two negative tests. We had said that we were going to swab you in day fourteen or fifteen and at day twenty one more than likely and that is simply because if you notice the literature is saying that some countries are even suggesting that quarantine will go to day thirty.”
