Belize now able to test for COVID-19

As a follow up to the training that two officers received in Mexico City, an in-house training is currently ongoing at our Central Medical Laboratory.

Parallel to this, we can confirm that we now have the capacity to do initial screening for COVID-19 as we now have primers and probes to test in country.

The tests will be carried out on potential/suspect cases following specific screening purposes.
