By Aaron Humes: In its weekly briefing, the Executive has announced that it has approved, and will soon announce, “a series of recommendations…to aid in preventing the spread of COVID-19… (covering) the period from October to December 2021.”
A recent meeting “with a few members of the COVID-19 Health Advisory Task Force” indicated “that while progress was being made in terms of the number of persons vaccinated, the public must continue to take all precautions since this third wave has not yet peaked.”
Cabinet has also approved the establishment of a COVID-19 Enforcement Unit within the Ministry of Health and Wellness to oversee responsibilities for the maintenance of supervision and enforcement of COVID-19 protocols in all businesses and other establishments.
Regarding vaccinations and the number of vaccines available in Belize, as of October 3, 2021, 198,580 persons or 48 percent of the population had received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 139,157 persons, or 34 percent, have been fully vaccinated. Four types of vaccines are now available free of charge.
Cabinet strongly urges the public to wear masks, maintain physical distance and wash hands regularly. For those not fully vaccinated, get vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccinations save lives!
