PM Briceño: Former Administration Had No Real Plan to Contain COVID-19 Spread

John Briceño

That briefing was with senior officials, including Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, Central Bank Governor Joy Grant and Financial Secretary Joseph Waight. Another big challenge facing the government is the COVID-19 pandemic. PM Briceño says after meeting with Director of Health Services, Doctor Marvin Manzanero, it was realised that the previous administration had no real plan to contain the virus in Belize.  Here is the PM on that situation.


Prime Minister John Briceño

“There is no real plan to contain the spread of the virus. Cabinet instructed the Minister of Health to meet with his technical team and advisors to develop a comprehensive plan to address the spread of this virus.  The plan will be presented to cabinet at its next meeting on Tuesday. While we expected it to be bad, the depths of mismanagement are truly scandalous. In addition to the presentation from the Ministry of Health and Wellness, the Minister of Infrastructure Development and Housing and the Minister for Sustainable Development, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management will be preparing reports and assessments for our next cabinet meeting.”
