So the government officials decided to do a complete shutdown in the country today and the following Sunday. The question I ask myself is why not make this announcement on Friday night or even earlier during the course of Saturday. As usual, they make some horrific decisions making the announcement at 8 PM when they curfew hits the clock, it’s just so tone-deaf.
Decisions need to be made with consideration for those with little to no income, the elderly etc. Those individuals who try to survive on a day to day basis with the little income they have will find that there are absolutely no shops, stores, nor pharmacies open today. Even if they go out they might find themselves being locked up in a jail cell.
On another note, a total of 26 tests were done yesterday of which one resulted positive for SARS-CoV2. Patient No. 14 is a Belizean female residing in San Ignacio. She was a close contact with Patient No. 4 and remains in self-isolation at home.
