Date:4/30/2009

BELIZE CITY, Belize, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As a result of the recent swine flu outbreak throughout the world, the Central American country of Belize has implemented several vigilant measures in an effort to protect all residents and travelers.

Due to Belizean officials' understanding of the severity of this situation, and as a result of the proactive measures health authorities in Belize have taken and continue to take since the first signs of swine flu in Mexico; four cases are currently under investigation by the Ministry of Health. Based on that information, the BTB is also taking a very proactive approach with ensuring that all hotel and tour operators within the country are fully educated and prepared for any questions from tourists regarding the situation, and are armed with advice for keeping their property or business as sterile as possible.
