Extended Lockdown for Three Villages; Vaccinations Up

In cabinet news, Minister of Health and Wellness informed the cabinet that as of July twelfth, over one hundred and seven thousand Belizeans or twenty-five percent of the population received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and almost forty thousand or nine percent are fully vaccinated.  In the first week of the new vaccination campaign, almost twenty thousand people were vaccinated.  Unfortunately, after receiving an update on the number of new COVID-19 infections, cabinet had to extend the lockdown in the southern villages of Barranco, Midway and Conejo until July thirty-first.  Cabinet approved an upgrade to the water system in San Antonio Village in the Toledo District and gave Tourism Minister Anthony Mahler the green light to sign a revised Constitutive Agreement of the Mundo Maya Organization.  Finally, cabinet gave its approval for the Belize Intellectual Property Office (BELIPO) to adopt the Harmonized Database of acceptable goods and services for the classification of trademark applications.
