The spreading of the Zika virus in various parts of the world raised alarming concerns over the past months especially here in Belize due to the fact that the Aedes Aegyti mosquito that is responsible for the transmission of the virus can also be found here in the Caribbean.


In Belize there were four suspected cases of the virus and today the Chief Executive Officer of the Ministry of Health, Ramon Figueroa, made it clear that the country remains Zika free. This is partly due to the clean-up campaigns that are currently taking place country wide.

“I was informed that we have sent out four samples and they have returned back negative, at this point in time as far as we know we don’t have any case of interest anything that seems to indicate any Zika so hopefully we can continue along that light we also discussing the fact that even dengue seems to be going down for Belize so we had some positive results either because there is not much rain or because of the interventions that we had in partnerships with Town Boards and City Councils in the cleaning campaign specially because of zika.”
