Mexico has entered what its government calls "Phase 3" of the spread of the coronavirus, the most serious stage, as transmission of the virus intensifies.

But what does that mean for Belize?

Well, we certainly have to closely watch our neighbor to the north with whom we share cultural and economic ties as well as an extremely porous border.

Mexico has registered 857 coronavirus deaths and 9,501 infections, with 729 new cases reported today.

But the country is focusing on austerity and mitigation measures rather than attempts to extinguish the epidemic. They have also shied away from curfew measures which have been deemed authoritarian.

And in Chetumal, a place that in regular circumstances is frequented by 100's of Belizeans every weekend, there have been 426 confirmed cases with 63 cases under investigation. Those are massive numbers in comparison to the 18 cases confirmed in Belize thus far and only serve to indicate that our borders with Mexico won't be opening anytime soon.

CORRECTION ON CHETUMAL

Last night we told you that Mexico had entered what its government calls "Phase 3" of the spread of the coronavirus, the most serious stage, as transmission of the virus intensifies.

We also provided numbers for Chetumal, which were unfortunately erroneous. What we provided were Quintana Roo's statistics which stand at 426 confirmed cases with 63 cases under investigation.

Chetumal's actual figures are much more conservative with 12 active cases, 4 deaths, and 3 patients recovered.

Still, with the number of coronavirus cases in our northern neighbor surging it is expected that our shared border will remain closed for some time.
