By Aaron Humes: Spanish Lookout in the Cayo District is the latest headache for the Ministry of Health, but it’s one they aim to get rid of.
Community leaders met with Ministry personnel yesterday, allowing them to go in and conduct testing and vaccination, in a community that is largely autonomous by design.
But as Minister of Health Michel Chebat reminded, not completely autonomous: “We live in one nation and we expect that the police will enforce the laws across the country in an even way.”
He added that the situation Belizeans who visit the community to buy have been reporting where residents are not wearing masks would “be remedied by the Police in short order.”
And to the claims that the community has been able to avoid no more than two deaths of persons over the age of 80 and operated schools, churches and business on their own model, the Minister said his remit is to the entire country and that even one death is too many.
