Prime Minister Tours KHMH COVID Unit

Prime Minister John Briceno visited the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital’ s COVID Unit today to get a firsthand look at the COVID situation inside. The unit has been operating at capacity with COVID patients for the past few weeks. The staff inside the unit works long and hard shifts with little to no breaks in-between, in an effort to preserve the lives of those inside the Unit. Today, PM Briceno got a chance to appreciate the work of the health care worker inside the unit by taking a tour and meeting with the CEO. We hear from him courtesy the Government Press Office.

“Well first of all, let me start off to express my gratitude to the management and staff at the KHMH. The work they are doing is simply incredible and amazing and a lot of the work they are doing is based on love, determination and believing in what they are doing. So, I want to express on behalf of myself the government and the people of this country, our profound gratitude to them. But also I thought it was important to come and take a first-hand look at COVID and the increase of COVID patients that continue to rise. Again, the staff has shown great ingenuity in moving things around, trying to find more spaces to bring more patients in to make it available for patients. It shows that with ingenuity and hard work and conviction, there is a lot that can be done. I also want to express and let our staff here at KHMH know that we also have a responsibility to them to see and ensure we can do our very best to ensure that they have the necessary tools, the equipment, the medication, and as much as possible the human resources to be able to fight this pandemic that has been affecting to many Belizeans right now. Our commitment is the KHMH, we will be meeting with Minister Chebat and talk to him about what are the place to ensure we can continue to give the necessary support KHMH needs. I want to end with this: all of this we are doing can be avoided if people get vaccinated. So, I appeal to Belizeans, please get vaccinated as soon as you possibly can. That is the only way we can go back to some sort of normalcy in this country, where we can be able to open up the economy more and people can work to look after their families and help to develop this country.”
