Mauritius imposes isolation for positive COVID-19 passengers from China

With the explosion of Covid-19 cases in China due to the circulation of the BF.7 sub-variant, Mauritius has just imposed “mandatory isolation” for positive Covid-19 passengers arriving from China (or who have transited through that country).

According to reports, the Prime Minister’s Office has announced that anyone with flu symptoms must undergo a rapid antigen test on arrival and again on the third and fifth day of their stay.

If this test is positive, a PCR test will be performed. 

“We will have to do the sequencing to find out which variant it is. But in the meantime, the traveller will have to isolate himself and the follow-up will be done by the Ministry of Health,” the PMO was cited as saying.

Earlier this week, leading trade union, the State and Other Employees Federation (SOEF), called the Mauritian government to impose compulsory face masks in public areas.
