By BBN Staff: The United States Embassy in Belize continues to provide logistical support to Belize amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
On May 12, the U.S. Embassy’s acting deputy chief of mission, Beverly Mather-Marcus shared more information about the notice of funding opportunity for the CARSI grants on COVID-19 Watch with host Andre Pitts.
Marcus explained that the US Embassy continues to provide support and assistance to the Government of Belize for the importation of medical supplies and equipment.
Marcus says that the Embassy is working closely with the Government of Belize, Washington and the shipment hubs to ensure that any shipment of medical equipment destined for Belize arrived on time.
“At no time has the US authorities confiscated any shipment of medical supplies,” Marcus said.
She further explained that the issue that was brought up was that the items were potentially held up because the shipment agency misinterpreted US regulations.
In that case, the embassy worked directly with the Belizean embassy in the US to get the assurances they needed and that shipment has since arrived in Belize.
