By Aaron Humes: Belize is to receive five new ventilators and patient monitors as a donation to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

Minister of Health & Wellness Michel Chebat informed Cabinet that the donation is in pursuit of strengthening the medical sector’s ability to care for COVID-19 patients, and the possible detection of the Omicron variant in Belize.

Recently U.S. Charge d’Affaires Leyla Moses-Ones announced that the United States Government would be donating ventilators as part of its continuing support of Belize in the COVID-19 fight.

Meanwhile, Cabinet was updated on the status of vaccinations and the number of vaccines available in Belize. Currently, there are more than 360,042 vaccines available.

As of November 29, 2021, 210,154 persons or 48.8 percent had received at least one dose of the vaccine and 197,739 or 45.9 percent have been fully vaccinated.

As the holiday season draws near and even with the virus apparently in retreat, Cabinet continues to encourage those not yet vaccinated to do so and reminds Belizeans who have been fully vaccinated for more than three months that booster shots are now available. The public is reminded to maintain physical distance, wash hands regularly, and wear a mask or face covering in public.
