K.H.M.H. C.E.O. on COVID-19, “The end is nowhere in sight.”

Timothy Seguro

The push to get the majority of Belizeans fully vaccinated is a mammoth undertaking that cannot be understated, given the present number of COVID-19 cases.  Health officials, along with medical personnel at all hospitals, including K.H.M.H., have been working overtime to stem the spread of the disease.  The K.H.M.H. staff has been and remains on the frontline since April 2020, when the first hospitalization was recorded.  Acting C.E.O. Timothy Seguro acknowledges the concerted effort of his employees.


Timothy Seguro, Acting Chief Executive Officer, K.H.M.H.A.

“It has been a long and drawn-out fight and yet still the end is nowhere in sight.  I have to say thank you from our housekeepers all the way up to our specialists, I mean our staff has been working some long hours.  We try to see how we can tweak the system to get them a little more break or rest period, however, it is just long.  And before staff gets drawn-out or worn out I would ask the public to please at least maintain the guidelines that the Ministry of Health is putting out there.  The only hope we have right now is in the vaccine and there is a constant press for our citizens to get the vaccine, I know it seems oppressive but when you come to the hospital and you see the throes of the fight, that’s when you see the importance of the vaccine because a lot of people would not need to be at this point as long as they have the vaccine.”
