A new book called “COVID-19 Pandemic: Lessons from the Frontline,” has just been published and Belize’s own Doctor Jorge Hidalgo is one of the editors.  The publication is a compilation of facts and opinions about the pandemic gathered from contributors around the world.  The contents range from the thoughts of one of the first COVID-19 patients in Australia to the experiences of leaders in India.  Today, Doctor Hidalgo shared more about the publication.

“This book is a book that is basically trying to get a world opinion. We have twenty-one chapters. What we did is we collected the opinions of the leaders from several countries. Of course, one of the most important is the opinion on our country, what is happening in Belize.  We decided to have an opinion from people in Brazil. We have leaders from Brazil. Brazil, as everybody knows what they went through with the pandemic. We have the opinion also from leaders of the Middle East, and see how they face the pandemic. From India, a little to comment on what is the overall situation and the future of the pandemic, what to expect.  Also we have other important points like how the young generation faced the pandemia. We have the millennial opinion. What happened with them and how they felt during the pandemic. How their lives changed dramatically going to online schools. To mention that, we have the opinion of a patient; the patient from the initial start. And, the other part that we thought was really important is to have something on what we do in terms of a surge, what are the different steps that is recommended in case of a surge, how the health system should respond.”
