Belize Prime Minister Dean Barrow says there are no plans for declaring a state of emergency (SOE) or a total shutdown of the country as Belize recorded its second case of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The second case is the mother of the 38-year-old resident of the San Pedrito area of San Pedro, who was the country’s first recorded COVID-19 case.

Barrow said his administration is not contemplating a national shut down of the country, adding “they are not announcing the declaration of a state of emergency”.

He said that should his administration agree on a SOE, citizens must not panic
