COVID Numbers on a Downward Trend

For some time now, the positivity rate of COVID-19 has been on a downward trend, registered between five and ten percent. It’s the lowest that the country has seen in a while as Belize appears to be overcoming our third wave. Currently, there are one thousand eighty-two active cases with one hundred and seventy-three new cases detected over the weekend. There have been a total of five hundred and seventy-four deaths. Earlier today, News Five spoke with Doctor Melissa Diaz-Musa of the Central Health Region to get a pulse of the situation in Belize District.

“We are at the downward trend of the curve or the last wave. The last wave for the country of Belize peaked in early October. And although we are seeing a little bit of fluctuation still in certain districts, for Belize District, we have consistently been on the downward trend which is very good for us.  It will give us the opportunity to focus a lot on getting as much vaccines out as possible, to ensure that we assist with enforcement of public health measures, get our staff retrained and ensure that we are well-versed with our P.P.E.s with our public health measures and all these things. So it gives us a little time to recuperate and prepare for the next wave that may or may not come to Belize.”
