[Linked Image]In memory of Drs. Kevin and Kenneth Guerra, the Ministry of Health and Wellness, Health Regions countrywide and the Belize Medical and Dental Association, invite Belizeans to join in a countrywide motorcade by blowing their vehicle horns at 6:00 p.m. today, December 13th.

The doctors, who are also twin brothers, died from complications due to COVID-19 over the weekend. Both doctors fought this pandemic on the frontline.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness invites colleagues from the public and private sector, the Police Department, Transport Department, and Fire Department to participate in the motorcade. The Ministry also asks that everyone wishing to participate in this moment light a candle at home with their families and post it on Facebook at 6:00 p.m. with the hashtag #frontlineheroes.

Let us unite in memory of these frontline workers and every Belizean who has lost the fight to COVID-19. Let it be heard from north to south, east to west.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness Shares Condolences to the Families of Drs. Kevin and Kenneth Guerra

The Minister of Health and Wellness, Hon. Michel Chebat, joins Belizeans and healthcare workers in prayer and sharing of condolences to the Guerra family on the passing of twin brothers, Dr. Kevin and Dr. Kenneth Guerra.

Dr. Kevin Guerra died on December 12, 2020. He worked at the Independence Polyclinic under the Ministry of Health and Wellness for five years. The Ministry learned with sadness that Dr. Kenneth Guerra also lost the fight to COVID-19 this morning, December 13, 2020. Dr. Kenneth worked at the San Ignacio Community Hospital under the Ministry of Health and Wellness for three years. The Guerra brothers were beloved husbands, fathers, sons, friends, and medical colleagues. They were appreciated and admired by their patients and colleagues and will be greatly missed by the communities they served.

Unfortunately, Drs. Kevin and Kenneth Guerra are Belize’s first healthcare workers to have lost their lives to complications due to COVID-19. The Ministry values the health of its frontline workers and continues to work diligently to ensure frontline workers remain prepared and equipped for any impact from COVID-19.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness reminds the public to visit the nearest flu clinic for testing and medical management if they are experiencing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or call the hotline number 0-800-MOH-CARE (0-800-664-2273). If experiencing difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, or chest pain while in isolation or quarantine, seek medical attention immediately.

The Ministry offers thoughts and prayers to all healthcare workers and all persons who are fighting the battle against this deadly virus.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness offers its deepest condolences to the families of Drs. Kevin and Kenneth Guerra. They served their patients and country well.

Let us join forces in the fight against COVID-19.


Funeral for the late Dr. Kevin and Kenneth Guerra


San Pedro Town Council:

Tonight we light a candle in honor of our frontline workers, especially Dr. Kevin and Dr. Kenneth Guerra who lost their lives to COVID-19. We also light this candle in honor of those who have fallen due to this pandemic.

We take this opportunity to ask you to keep Dr. Manzanero in your thoughts and prayers as well as those that are currently battling this virus.

Lastly, we light this candle as a symbol of strength for the friends and family who are grieving and a symbol of hope that we will get through this.

We implore the whole country to follow the protocols that have been established so that we stop losing our loved ones. Only WE can stop the spread. Do not let your guard down. Stay safe.
