Since the “Mauritius” region opened to fully immunized visitors on October 1, the country has welcomed more than 80,000 holidays.
Year-end applications look “promising,” according to a statement from local authorities, with an average growth rate of 25% coming in.
Mauritius health workers continue to implement a comprehensive response to Covid-19 and are now taking the lead in starting treatment for those who have been vaccinated twice.
Vaccination of young people between the ages of 15 and 18 has also worked.
Nearly 85% of adults in Mauritius have been vaccinated twice, one of the highest rates in the world.
The country has seen an increase in the number of cases in recent years, with officials saying it was “unfortunately part of the new laws in many countries” where restrictions have been lifted.
To expand the spread there, the government recently agreed to provide temporary school closures and introduce several other health measures, notably to prevent large gatherings.
From a tourism point of view, the standards of cleanliness and hospitality facilities remain of the “highest standard”, providing maximum protection for local and international residents against this virus.
Mauritius Tourism Minister Steven Obeegadoo said: “In Mauritius, we continue to prioritize the health of our residents and our extensive rebuilding is part of this careful forecast.
“Since the reopening of our region in October, we have received more than 80,000 passengers to date, and we look forward to welcoming many more to our community.”
