COVID Numbers Still Low; What Does it Mean?

Natalia Largaespada Beer

Over the weekend, sixteen new cases were identified across the country and fourteen new recoveries. No deaths were recorded over the weekend leaving the COVID-19 death toll at three hundred and eighteen. There are seventy-six samples that are under investigation and forty-one active cases as of April twelfth. Doctor Beer says that numbers are great, but the public should not let down its guard.

“With the COVID data we are still the phase of the pandemic worldwide; it is not only Belize, other countries are experiencing a rise in the number of cases, even after reducing the number of COVID-19 cases. This is an opportunity to remind every Belizean that we all have a responsibility to ensure we keep these numbers low. Yes the vaccine is contributing to reduce the number of COVID-19, to reduce the transmission, but we need to do our part even after reducing the first dose of vaccine.”
