A further 31 samples, which included primary contacts of patients #6 and #7, were tested on April 7th, for COVID-19. Out of those, the Ministry has confirmed another positive case.

The patient is a 50-year-old male who is currently in the isolation area of the Corozal Community Hospital. The patient was referred from the private sector and has been hospitalized since yesterday. A mapping exercise has started for this patient and further details will be provided later on in the day.

There is a second confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Corozal District. The patient is Ramsey Gillett, a brave public officer who works at the Lands Department in Corozal Town and resides there with his wife and two children.

Statement from Patient #8, Ramsley Gillett

[Linked Image] ďAs the latest person to contract the COVID-19 virus in Belize, I want to share my situation with the nation. I am Ramsley Gillett, a 50-year-old Belizean working as a Land Inspector with the Ministry of Natural Resources. I am a resident of Corozal, where my wife, two children and I reside.

It is my belief that I contracted the coronavirus while regularly engaged in my duties as a public servant. I have decided to make this public declaration with the hope of ending the stigma and discrimination that Iíve seen displayed against other COVID-19 patients and their families.

My request to all my fellow citizens is for you to give my family and I your support during this very difficult time. We are a God-fearing family and we ask you to join your prayers with ours at this time. Please pray especially for my beautiful wife and two children.

I am currently in the care of the Healthcare system of Belize and my plea is that the government does all that is in its power to care for and provide the best medical services to those like myself who are affected by this deadly virus. Please ensure that there is wider-spread testing and that the parameters for determining when somebody will be tested is now widened to include those who may not have a travel history outside Belize. Please afford prompt and courteous service to all who make an outreach and attempt to engage the public health services of our country. My experience in the aforementioned could certainly have been different.

I beg all Belizeans to follow the advice of the authorities, stay at home and practice social distancing. Do not come out if you do not have to. Please let us all do our part to protect ourselves, families and the communities in which we live.

Finally, I request of all once more, the support and respect for my family and I as we go through this very difficult time.Ē

May Godís grace be upon us all.
