By Aaron Humes: Reminding of this time last year when Belize was under lockdown, UNICEF Representative Alison Parker described the COVID-19 crisis as a “children’s crisis,” because as few of them have been infected, many more have been impacted by the economic and social consequences of COVID-19.
She made a special plea to teachers, some of whom are headed back to face-to-face classes after the Easter vacation, to get themselves vaccinated in order to ensure a safe transition for education.
She also announced that UNICEF will be supporting Belize’s efforts to obtain “cold chain” stored vaccines such as those made by Pfizer and Moderna as well as national communications efforts.
