By BBN Staff: Last night, the wake was held in Dangriga for fallen Superintendent of Police, Henry Jemmott.
Videos circulating on social media showed a large group of people dancing closely, some not wearing face masks, others with the masks under their chins.
In addition, several people were reportedly drinking liquor while dancing in what they call, a celebration of King’s life.
But, with 137 active cases of COVID-19, and a daily increase of cases, will the celebration be a COVID-19 super spreader?
To date, social gatherings are still restricted, and the wake broke several if not all COVID-19 protocols.
Since, Jemmott was well-known and well-liked around the country, many friends attended the wake and the funeral this morning.
Jemmott had served as Officer Commanding in San Pedro and San Ignacio and was to be transferred to Belize City.
Jemmott’s family and friends are still devastated by his death and his immediate relatives say they plan to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Jemmott met his demise on the early hours of May 28 while socializing on a pier in San Pedro with Jasmine Hartin.
Hartin was charged for manslaughter by negligence and later given bail of $30,000.
