The Ministry of Health via a press release issued late yesterday evening confirmed the detection of three positive cases of the H1N1 influenza in the Corozal District.

The confirmations were received yesterday afternoon from the Ministry of Health’s Central Medical Lab in Belize City. The confirmed cases include two males who recently travelled to Merida, Yucatan Mexico, while the third is a pregnant female who resides in Chetumal, Quintana Roo.

In light of the situation the MOH says that they have activated their Northern Regional and National Surveillance teams to immediately start managing these cases and to plan further actions.

In closing the ministry says that they will continue to monitor the situation and advise the public as new cases may arise.

Earlier this month more than 20 cases including six deaths were reported in Chetumal Quintana Roo. In 2009 the World Health Organization had declared the virus a global pandemic that had claimed the lives of hundreds of people.

Symptoms of the virus includes fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, red watery eyes, body aches, headache, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
