“To the request of Belize, the EU has once more responded positively by making these vaccines available to the country. These vaccines will contribute greatly to maintain the level of COVID cases low in the country. I’ve seen the figures lately. They seem to rise again, so we have to be vigilant. It is important to vaccinate as many people as possible and reduce the spread of the disease.”
