By Aaron Humes: On Monday evening at the Philip Goldson International Airport in Ladyville, two mechanical ventilators were formally handed over to the Ministry of Health and Wellness by Mexico, as part of its official COVID-19 pandemic donation to Latin America and the Caribbean under its CELAC Presidency.

Belize and eight other Caribbean countries were given ventilators. Belize received a total of four, two of which were already in use as of last September at the COVID-19 Unit at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, Belize City. In September 2020, initial discussions began between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Mexico for the donation of manual ventilators to Belize.

Minister Michel Chebat; CEO Dr Deysi Mendez and Orla Kantun-Coleman, director of international affairs (cooperation), Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade accepted on behalf of Belize from Dr. Laura Elena Carrillo Cubillas, executive director for the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID); and H.E. Martha Zamarripa Rivas, ambassador of the Embassy of Mexico in Belize.

Mexico is a key partner for Belize through various bilateral and multilateral cooperation agreements and projects. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mexican government through, continues to support Belize in areas of priority such as health, environment, education, infrastructure, science, and technology.
