COVID-19 vaccination

Protesters against COVID-19 vaccination clash with authorities on the mainland

The Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, via his Facebook account, warned organizers of a rally to protest against COVID-19 vaccination on Saturday, September 18th is illegal. Current COVID regulations prohibit gatherings, particularly those exceeding more than ten persons. The rally included a motorcade from the Spanish Lookout market, Cayo District, to Belize City. It did not make it to the city, but several supporters clashed with police, and even former Mayor Zenaida Moya was detained for allegedly hosting an unlawful social event.
