No More Lockdown for San Pedro When S.O.E. Expires

Dean Barrow

In San Pedro, meanwhile, the number of coronavirus cases is at a plateau and all indications are that the state of emergency on the island town will be lifted on September fourth.  PM Barrow says that based on the latest numbers the infection rate has stabilized.

“I don’t see that.  Of course we will be guided by the numbers.  I believe when Dr. Manzanero gave the breakdown, the last count from San Pedro or the number that proved positive from the last batch of samples is a small number.  I would want to believe that Ambergris Caye is plateauing and I certainly expect that we may be able to lift the quarantine even before it expires and remember that it‘s coming to an end in any event.  When we went to the house all we did was to have an extension for two weeks.”
