TAKEN FROM KREM NEWS: Dr. Fernando Cuellar speaks .. read people !!

"People will soon start dying in waiting areas, parking lots, on the streets," warns Dr. Fernando Cuellar

Following a meeting of the Belize Medical and Dental Association last night, Dr. Fernando Cuellar, for the 1st time, called in to the KREM WUB Morning Vibes to report on the discussion. He says he feels it his duty to do so and urgently informed the public that our health system, both public and private, is now being overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic and people will start dying on the streets. He pointed to people already being treated at home and placed on oxygen.

Dr. Cuellar, one of our few internists, highlighted our lack of resources: not enough ventilators, blood gas machines, physical space (hospital beds), medication and human resources.

He referenced it as "a slow, painful death of the person," as he called on the Belizean people to do things differently and take the SARS-CoV-2 virus seriously.

He also called on his colleagues to speak truth to the politicians.

Among his recommendations are, readily available testing in all districts, "an army of contact tracers," and partners outside of the public and private health systems helping to fight the spread of COVID.

He concluded saying "Don't go around saying 'if yoh dead, yoh dead. It is an ugly death, my people.'"

A nurse from the south subsequently called in to corroborate what she called the "over saturation" of our hospitals. Health staff are being told "just do your best...and some are making it and some just don't."
