    Orange Walk has recorded its 1,000th case and that district alone accounts for 36% of all cases identified.

    Today 15 of the 47 positives were front line workers (including health staff, BDF and Coast Guard).

    At least 7 health staff from the Belize Endoscopy and Gastroenterology Center have turned out positive and that has triggered a closure of the facility (they have separately issued a press release on the matter).

    We are also following a cluster originating out of the dialysis unit at Belize Health Care Partners Limited where staff and patients have turned out positive.

    In terms of Kolbe, 16 inmates are positive (7 males, 9 females) and 9 prison officers.

    COVID-19 Treatments

    Click on a small image for a larger view.

    This provided a quick snapshot of current therapies which remain investigational up until now. For the most part, the treatment is around developing symptoms and avoiding complications.

    In terms of vaccines, few are in phase 3 trials, this being the final phase before use in the general population. The consensus around these, is that it is still too early to determine when any would be ready for extended use.

    We also note that the two persons who had been intubated were extubated earlier today at KHMH’s ICU. They are recovering slowly and we continue to follow their clinical evolution, this includes our health care epidemiologist from the Western Health Region.

    We are also deeply troubled by the ongoing reports of social gathering and events across the country that involve members who aren’t from the same household and this include reports of those who are positive still being out in public and attending social events. While all relevant partners continue to follow these cases and reports, it remains a monumental task if we don’t have the cooperation from all as our human resources are being stretched to the limit with also ensuring full compliance from all cases.

    We can only flatten any curve if WE ALL do our part and we thank all those who to do theirs. See Source on Facebook. Posted 5 Sep 2020
