Gear and resource for front line health workers have arrived

COVID

The personal protective equipment has arrived in Belize for the front liners in the health sector.  These include the gears and resources they will need to ensure their safety when dealing with patients who may have contracted the COVID-19 strain.

The personal protective equipment has arrived in Belize for the front liners in the health sector.  These include the gears and resources they will need to ensure their safety when dealing with patients who may have contracted the COVID-19 strain.  In addition to the gears, the Government of Belize has sourced funds to ensure that the health workers and their immediate families are taken care of while they are busy at the hospitals working overtime.  The assistance will go to those at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital and the Northern Regional Hospital in Orange Walk Town.  Prime Minister spoke of how this will be carried out.

Rt.Hon Dean Barrow, Prime Minister of Belize: “I want to make clear that those front line persons will be taken care of fully and completely in so far as personal protective equipment is concerned, in so far as dealing first of all with the workers at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, in so far as finding separate quarters for them to live in apart from their family homes while they are on the front lines of the struggle so that there can be no question of their endangering the welfare of their family members. They will be taken care of with respect to an augmented compensation package to ensure that they can pay for babysitting services, they can pay for other things that they will need as they remain on the front line of this existential combat and they will, as part of that augmented compensation package, be given additional monies as a token of appreciation for this particularly dangerous but so absolutely vital job of work that they’re doing. In terms of the monies to do all this I’d already told you about the $2.5 million from Taiwan, the $1 million from CABEI- CBEI has offered additional assistance this time by way of a loan but that’s fine to pay specifically for testing kits and other essentials. So the money to equip properly the healthcare workers is in in hand.”
