Fabrigas Says San Pedro Has Enough Oxygen
Fabrigas came under fire earlier this week when a provider of emergency services on San Pedro said the company was refusing to rent him oxygen tanks.
It's a very serious allegation on an island being hit hard by COVID right now, where a ready supply of oxygen can mean the difference between life and death.
Well, Fabrigas says there is NO SHORTAGE of oxygen on the island or anywhere in the country of Belize.
In their press release, Fabrigas says that there are several places on the island where the general public and private medical facilities can purchase oxygen. In San Pedro, that distributor is FCS Aluminum. They clarify that the cost of oxygen on the island is $108 dollars per 220 cubic foot cylinder.
Third party Service providers have been known to raise this price up to take advantage of desperate persons in times of acute need.Channel 7
