Mauritius to recruit nurses and ICU specialists from India

Published

on

Mauritius is asking India for help in the fight against COVID-19, by providing staffs to support the island’s medical and nursing team.

Health Minister Kailesh Jagutpal has announced in Parliament that his ministry has triggered procedures, via the Ministry of Labour, to recruit 50 Nursing Officers and 25 specialists in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Treatment.

Calling other countries for help is also under consideration.

The government move comes only days after NGOs, health professionals and politicians urged the Mauritian authorities to urgently recruit medical staffs to support an already-overwhelmed health system.

Last week, nurses unions denounced that the Government were ignoring their call for a ‘break’. Instead, it issued a circular suspending their vacation leaves.

At least 120 nurses are said to have been tested positive for COVID-19 or self-isolating.
