Must Read

In a press conference this afternoon, Franchette Gaspard-Pierre Louis announced that a semi-lockdown is in force in Rodrigues. She explained that a total containment would have too many negative consequences. The regional government has decided on a semi-lockdown in order to limit travel to a minimum.

She said that measures are being taken to limit the number of people working in the public service to a minimum. The shift system will be favoured as well as teleworking. An appeal was made to the private sector to emulate the public service.

There are currently 187 positive cases on the island, including 81 admissions to the various public health centres.

In addition, a delegation is currently visiting Rodrigues on board the Dornier. It is led by Dr Sok Appadu, head of the ENT hospital.

The regional government also asked the Prime Minister’s office to issue a curfew from 7pm to 6am the next day.
