And while the number of positive cases is seeing a steady increase, there are no discussions for enforcing any additional measures. According to Doctor Diaz-Musa, what the ministry is encouraging at this time is for Belizeans to take personal responsibility by practicing some of the measures learnt over the past two years.

“At this point with the numbers and the way we are seeing a slight increase, no we are not discussing additional measures as yet. We have always spoken about personal responsibility and community responsibility that we all have. So, the press release yesterday focused a lot on that, in order to encourage our population to be mindful that the pandemic is still here, persons are still becoming unwell and we very much need to make sure that we continue with our public health measure and take that personal responsibility, especially so if you have someone in your home that is considered to be a vulnerable person, someone with a chronic disease, a pregnant woman, we have got to encourage people o protect each other and take our community responsibility as well.”
