Seychelles Seychelles

Paradise Seychelles is COVID-19 Free

After many weeks of battling tirelessly the deadly Covid-19 worldwide pandemic, Seychelles- the small island holiday destination in the Indian Ocean with a population of less than a hundred thousand inhabitants- is now Covid-19 free.

The country, which reported a number of 11 cases in total,  recently has announced the last infected patient tested negative for a continuous number of days and is now considered to be healed from the Covid-19 virus. 

The COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed to have reached Seychelles in March of this year as the announcement of the first two cases of COVID-19 was made on March 14.

The number of cases on the island increased slowly during the next three weeks and reached its peak on April 06, when the 11th case was confirmed including the only two local transmitted cases following which there has been no other positive cases reported on the islands.

Behind the successful handling of the delicate situation, resulting from this pandemic is the local authority known as the Public Health Authority under the supervision of its Seychelles' Public Health Commissioner, Dr. Jude Gedeon.
