Communication Help Provided to Central Health Region for COVID Hotline

Today, the Central Health Region in the Ministry of Health got some much needed help for their COVID-19 hotline which went down on Monday. Samsung distributor, Cellular World, came to the rescue, handing over a device that can help monitors and notify residents of their COVID status. Assistant Primary Healthcare Coordinator, Desiree Mejia, thanked their corporate partner.

“It was indeed a panic because of the volume of calls that we get on a daily basis from the general public in relation to anything COVID-related. Mainly for COVID-19 results and for information pertaining to vaccines, this is the line that persons can reach us if they have any queries pertaining to the Belize District. We thought about our corporate partners and the public/private partnership is always welcomed because we cannot suffice everything within the time that we need to. And so we brainstormed on who we could have reached out to and of course, Cellular World was number one on the list. And the response time was very great, I must admit, because it was literally within minutes that they gave us a response.”

“We do have a program, C.W. Cares, which is under our social corporate responsibility program and since last year, like year and a half, we have been donating to different organizations, to different people in need and we said why not. We decided let’s give a Samsung Galaxy A02 because, as Belize knows, we are the official distributor for Samsung.”

 

Anyone with COVID related questions in terms of results or vaccines, the number to contact is 613-0787 from eight to five all days of the week.
