By BBN Staff: On Tuesday, September 22, 2020, the British High Commissioner, Claire Evans and the Chief Executive Officer of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Lou-Anne Burns signed a Grant Agreement in support of Belize’s “National Media Campaign on SARS-CoV-2” to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in Belize.
The grant is valued at $80,490 Belize dollars.
The Government of Belize says that it continues work to minimize morbidity through a robust multilingual informational campaign tailored to the Belizean public.
“In line with the Belize Interim National COVID-19 Plan, the grant will be used to support the dissemination of accurate and up-to-date information through social media, printed media, and infomercial campaigns to ensure that the Belizean public is aware of the health and safety efforts being taken, and to help ensure that myths and rumors which abound are minimized,” the Government noted.
The Government noted the importance of the public to be well- informed on all issues of this pandemic not only for physical well-being but also for mental health. This campaign will help reduce stress and anxiety within society.
“The Government of the United Kingdom remains a committed and consistent partner in its support for Belize’s National response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” a statement from the High Commission said.
