I am on the island now and hearing some things about the swine flu. Does anyone know if there have been any cases in Belize? I know a lot of people travel here from Mexico, it seems like it is just a matter of time before it gets to the island.

Belize isn't on the list....
Huffington Post appears to have the best coverage

Well, as they say, it takes one to know one.

The closest confirmed cases are around Mexico City (7-800 miles from Belize - 4-500 miles from the US border) and towards the US border, the closest suspected cases are still 5-600 miles from Belize. Look here for a handy chart on Google maps:

The Queens, NY, kids who were confirmed with the swine flu had spent spring break in Cancun, (source: New York Times and other media) and the students from New Zealand also reportedly had been in the Yucatan, though they may have been elsewhere in Mexico and flew out of Mexico City.

In cases like this I prefer to rely on facts rather than stories.

Lan, I am just watching the news on CNN, they are (probably) talking about the same school kids that came from Cancun, and are reported sick: According to CNN it is still undetermined whether they have swine flu, let alone whether they even have the flu or something else.

Do you have a link that corroborates confirmed cases coming from Cancun Mexico?
