By Aaron Humes: In meeting on Tuesday, Cabinet directed that all persons wishing to enter Belize through the land borders must be tested for COVID-19 at the points of entry.

The borders have been open since the end of May to visitors who are subject to bring a proof of negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of travel and more recently proof of vaccination.

Meanwhile, Cabinet was updated on the status of vaccines and the number of vaccines available in Belize. As of 31 August 2021, 167,596 persons or 38.9 percent of the population had received at least one dose of the vaccine. This represents an increase of 18,168 new vaccinations over last week’s numbers.

As of 31 August 2021, 69,924 persons or 16.2 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated, an increase of 8,357 more Belizeans have been fully vaccinated over last week’s 61,567.

Since the roll out of the Pfizer vaccines, 10,638 Belizeans between the ages of 12 to 17 have received their first shot of the vaccine.
