downloadThere is still no confirmation emerging from the CARPHA Headquarters in Trinidad and Tobago as it pertains to the blood test samples of suspected Chikungunya cases that surfaced in the Las Flores Area of Belmopan last two weeks. Still, as of late his evening, there is no confirmed case of Chik-V in Belize, just two confirmed cases of Dengue and they are being treated accordingly. Meanwhile the Ministry of Health continues to prepare in case the virus should hit Belize. MOH is currently coordinating activities in conjunction with the Customs and Excise Department, the Immigration Department and the airlines for further strengthening at the Phillip Goldson International Airport. Meetings are also being held with the airlines and personnel from the Airport Concession Company to agree on the implementation of new procedures for passenger arrival.


A flow chart for processing of passengers is in use as a guide for Public Health Inspectors who are being rotated at the International Airport and training continues on infection control procedures for a wide cross section of persons at the International Airport while the isolation Unit is being fitted to support surveillance activity at the airport. A treatment facility has also been identified requiring minimal additional requirements to allow quarantine and treatment of contact symptomatic cases. We understand that the National Ebola Plan, which covers surveillance, quarantine, treatment and risk communication, is also being finalized by the Planning Unit of the Ministry of Health. A review of travel restrictions also continues.
