Isolation Unit at the San Pedro Care Center

As the pandemic COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continues to wreak havoc around the world, Belize is already dealing with its first three cases. San Pedro Town has taken the initiative to create a temporary medical facility center, where patients who test positive and need to be in intensive care and observation can be treated.

The center, called San Pedro Care Center, counts with an isolation unit, a flu clinic, a pharmacy and a temporary isolation area. All islanders with any flu-like symptoms are asked to not visit the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II, but may do so at this new health center located in the Mar de Tumbo area, south of downtown San Pedro. Opening Hours are: Weekdays, 8am 5pm and on Weekends, 8am 12 noon. Each room has its own entry/exit to the outside, through which the patient is brought by ambulance. After they feel better, they leave through the same doorway. Other amenities in the isolation unit include bathrooms, an ante-room/decontamination zone where medical personnel get into their protective gear.

Impressive Tent Clinics On San Pedro

And in accordance with guidelines. The San Pedro Clinic has set up both a screening tent and a community facility to care for mild patients. This morning Dion Vansen from the San Pedro Sun got a tour of San Pedro's COVID-19 and flu clinics. He talked to Dr. Javier Canul, doctor and surveillance officer who is working despite limited resources on the island. Canul says that his work isolates those who may test positive from the rest of the population.

The isolation unit has 30 beds distributed into five rooms. Each room has its own entrance and exit. The building is also equipped with surveillance cameras, staff room, kitchenette, storeroom and a changing room for medical personnel in which they can don their PPE's.
