US Embassy Donates Medical Supplies

This week the US Embassy donated medical supplies and training aids to the Ministry of Health and Wellness. This support, valued at one hundred thousand Belize dollars, was handed over by the Chargé d’Affaires, Leyla Moses-Ones. Supplies include personal protective equipment, filters, hygiene and disinfectant supplies, and training mannequins. The items will be distributed to healthcare facilities across the country for infection prevention and control in hospitals. The instructional aids will be used by the Ministry’s training unit to teach intubation techniques. In the coming weeks, the United States will be providing twelve ventilators. To date, the US has contributed ten million Belize dollars in COVID-19 assistance to Belize.
