Update 2 ( 10/03/2021)
As communicated on the 10th March 2021, Mauritius went into total lockdown following the detection of 10 COVID-19 cases in the community. The lockdown was enforced for a period of 2 weeks to contain the spread of the coronavirus. The number of positive COVID-19 cases in Mauritius has now risen to 219. The positive cases have been detected mainly through stringent contact tracing and targeted testing undertaken by the Mauritius health authorities. All those tested positive are receiving treatment at public hospitals and the latest information is that there is no cause for serious concern regarding their health.
The vaccination campaign in the country is going on at accelerated pace of about 7,000 vaccinations per day with over 100,000 people having been vaccinated so far out of a population of 1.3 Million. The government has estimated that 60% of the population will have been vaccinated by June 2021.
As a precautionary measure, the lockdown measures which started on the 10th March 2021 have been extended till the 31st March 2021. As from that date there will be a partial relaxation of the lockdown with certain businesses being opened to a limited or full extent as well as a resumption of certain social activities which were prohibited during the lockdown.
