By Aaron Humes: Historic as his victory was, Prime Minister John Briceno has warned supporters to be cautious with their celebrations.
“My Fellow Belizeans, while I understand that we have just come off the heels of an historic election victory and our many supporters want to celebrate, I must implore and urge you to practice CAUTION. We are still in the throes of a very serious pandemic that continues to escalate. While we get ready to implement our plan of action, it is imperative that every Belizean man, woman and child do their part to social distance, wear masks and generally take care of each other,” Briceno said in a statement.
He continued, “We are on the precipice of great things, Belize. I just ask that we remain patient and continue to do the right things to protect one another one day at a time.”
On Friday, ten deaths from COVID-19 were reported nationwide including three in Briceno’s native Orange Walk District. 119 new cases were recorded.
Briceno’s administration will emphasize heavy testing and contact tracing to get a handle on the virus, while encouraging some re-opening of the economy.
