A resident of Belize, Karina, said,” Corozal and Orange Walk is doing tremendous. They need to lockdown City and Cayo to get the same results. Can you please show active cases per district too?”

 “Population larger, so it might not be an issue. Up north, lots of people are not checking with doctors or availing themselves of the rapid screening, and that in itself will only pick up asymptomatic cases. It’s only when they can not cope, they go to the hospital or polyclinics. Remember lots of people commute to and from the other districts into Belize City and its environs daily.” Karl replied to Karina.
