Update: SATURDAY 22 JANUARY 2022

GIS – 21 January 2022At a press conference held this afternoon in Port Louis, the Vice-Prime Minister, Minister of Education, Tertiary Education, Science and Technology, Mrs Leela Devi Dookun-Luchoomun, announced that all pre-primary, primary, secondary and tertiary education institutions would reopen on 02 February 2022 and that a team was working to create the best conditions for students to resume full-time school-based learning at that date...

...schools were closed in November 2021, following the sharp rise in COVID-19 cases and as part of efforts to curb the spread of the virus. Remote learning mode, through online platforms and television programmes, was then implemented to run until 31st January 2022, to ensure learning continuity. She explained that an analysis of the sanitary situation allowed the Education Ministry, which was in constant communication with the Health Authorities and the High-Level Committee on COVID-19, to decide to resume classroom-based learning as from February 2022...

Health protocols, including clear hygiene directives of wearing of masks and hand washing and sanitising, together with guidelines on social distancing and staggered schedule would still be in effect to reduce the risk of infection.

Moreover, a COVID-19 testing area would be designated in each school so that the newly created 90-member COVID-19 testing team could be deployed in schools when positive cases are detected to identify new infections. Rooms, where cases are detected, would be cleaned and disinfected on the same day..."

The president of National Communication Committee, Dr .JOOMYE indicated:
"that 60% of teaching and non-teaching staff had been vaccinated till date, while the vaccination rate for young people aged 15 to 17 years old was 94% and that for 12-14 years old was 43,6%.”

Update: FRIDAY 21 JANUARY 2022

The Minister of Health & Wellness Hon. Jagutpal has announced on the MBC TV, on Thursday 13 January 2022 “GIS: The series of restrictive measures announced in November 2021 by the Prime Minister so as to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country will still be applicable until the end of March 2022..” See below.

17 cases of OMICRON Variant of Concern (VOC) HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED IN MAURITIUS-
Out of 79 samples collected from 16 to 27 December 2021, 70 are local and nine are imported cases.  The results are as follows: 62 cases of the Delta variant were detected out of which 55 are local and seven imported cases; and, 17 cases of the Omicron variant were detected out of which 15 are local and two are imported cases.”

COVID New CONTAMINATIONS, as at THURSDAY 20 JANUARY 2022 is 25,0753 have been admitted in ENT Hospital & 17 in Regional Hospitals. 22,710+ patients have recovered.

DELTA Mutant is the major cause of Deaths.

As at 19 January 2022 National Vaccinations for 1.3m Population of MAURITIUS- 1st Dose-962,711 (76%); Full Dose-925,277 (74%) and Booster Dose-263,925+.

GIS – 14 January 2022: The deadline for the administration of the booster dose in order to obtain the ‘fully vaccinated’ status against COVID-19 has been extended from 15 January 2022 to 19 February 2022.

One Million Doses of MOLNUPIRAVIR distributed in Regional Hospitals.

World Health Organization (WHO) 14 January 2022 Statement Geneva: 
“WHO has recommended two new drugs for COVID-19, providing yet more options for treating the disease. The extent to which these medicines will save lives depends on how widely available and affordable they will be.

The first drug, baricitinib, is strongly recommended for patients with severe or critical COVID-19. It is part of a class of drugs called Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors that suppress the overstimulation of the immune system. WHO recommends that it is given with corticosteroids.
Baricitinib is an oral drug, used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It provides an alternative to other arthritis drugs called Interleukin-6 receptor blockers, recommended by WHO in July 2021.

WHO has also conditionally recommended the use of a monoclonal antibody drug, sotrovimab, for treating mild or moderate COVID-19 in patients who are at high risk of hospitalization. This includes patients who are older, immunocompromised, having underlying conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity, and those unvaccinated.
Sotrovimab is an alternative to casirivimab-imdevimab, a monoclonal antibody cocktail recommended by WHO in September 2021. Studies are ongoing on the effectiveness of monoclonal antibodies against Omicron but early laboratory studies show that sotrovimab retains its activity.

The panel of experts developing the guidelines also looked at two other drugs for severe and critical COVID-19: ruxolitinib and tofacitinib. Given their uncertain effects, WHO made a conditional recommendation against their use.”

WHO-26 November 2021: ''Classification of Omicron (B.1.1.529): SARS-CoV-2 Variant of Concern:

The Technical Advisory Group on SARS-CoV-2 Virus Evolution (TAG-VE) is an independent group of experts that periodically monitors and evaluates the evolution of SARS-CoV-2 and assesses if specific mutations and combinations of mutations alter the behaviour of the virus. The TAG-VE was convened on 26 November 2021 to assess the SARS-CoV-2 variant: B.1.1.529. 

The B.1.1.529 variant was first reported to WHO from South Africa on 24 November 2021. The epidemiological situation in South Africa has been characterised by three distinct peaks in reported cases, the latest of which was predominantly the Delta variant. In recent weeks, infections have increased steeply, coinciding with the detection of B.1.1.529 variant. The first known confirmed B.1.1.529 infection was from a specimen collected on 9 November 2021.''
