Current H1N1 and Denuge Situation

H1N1 Swine flu Situation in Belize:
BELMOPAN, Belize -- The Ministry of Health has reported that as of July 17, 2009, Belize has 22 confirmed cases of Influenza A H1N1. At least three of the latest cases are from Cayo, while the others are in the northern districts. These cases have presented with mild flu-like symptoms and have recovered.

The World Health Organization (WHO) report on disease outbreaks that occur throughout the world.

Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever Outbreack
BELMOPAN, Belize -- July 21, 2009. There’s a Dengue outbreak in the Cayo District. That’s what the Ministry of Health says after 114 cases appeared in that western district between May fourth and July fourteenth. And we don’t say “outbreak” casually. According to the Ministry, the spike in reported cases exceeds the expected number for this time of year. Couple that with the fact that these cases are all within the Cayo district and all that makes it into a full-fledged Dengue Outbreak.
