Three cases of H1N1 have been confirmed in Belize. The Ministry of Health issued an advisory today saying that the country remains in heightened surveillance for any Influenza (flu) or Severe Acute Respiratory Illnesses. As of today, Monday January 20, there are three confirmed cases of H1N1 Influenza A in Belize.
Five other samples that have tested positive for Influenza A have been sent to Caribbean and Regional Public Health Agency, CARPHA, in Trinidad and Tobago, for further testing and confirmation. The release says, however, that neither H1N1 nor any other Influenza A strain have been linked or involved with any of the severe respiratory cases that are presently hospitalized.
