Seychelles, an island in East Africa. Earlier this year, the people of the country were vaccinated against coronavirus free of cost. The Seychelles have been vaccinated more than Israel and the United Kingdom. The country’s population is twice as vaccinated as the United States. Despite so many vaccinations, coronavirus infection has been on the rise in the country since this week. The detection rate is almost close to India.
According to a report in The Washington Post, experts say they are rethinking the effectiveness of the vaccine in increasing coronary heart disease. Seychelles, an isolated island in the Indian Ocean, is economically dependent on tourism. The issue of tourists coming and going is also being investigated in case of increase in infection.
Seychelles called on regional allies such as India and the United Arab Emirates to provide vaccines. President Wavell Ramakalawan told reporters that the government had plans to go for hard immunity. Seychelles is one of the most vaccinated countries in the world. More than 80 percent of the country’s population has been vaccinated. More people have been vaccinated in Seychelles than in Israel and the United Kingdom. The Seychelles vaccination rate is almost double that of the United States.
Everything was going pretty well. However, Seychelles’ achievements in preventing coronavirus infection have faded this week. The corona infection rate has risen the most in the country this week. The Seychelles government has been forced to impose sanctions again in the wake of the situation. Some experts fear the vaccine is less effective against new types of coronavirus identified in the United Kingdom, South Africa and Brazil. In Seychelles, an average of 100 people a day are infected with the corona. The country is home to less than a million people. So Seychelles is worse off than India in terms of corona detection rate.
Malsini Senaratne, director of Eco-Sol, an environmental consultancy in Seychelles, said the disrupted public health system in the Corona would be under further pressure due to increased infections. Coronavirus restrictions have been announced in Seychelles. School closures have been announced in the country. Shops and restaurants have been told to stay open till a certain time.
Public Health Commissioner Jude Gedeon said in a news briefing last Tuesday that coronavirus infections are on the rise. “We don’t know when the coronary heart disease will end,” he said. However, the level of infection control depends on the steps taken and the extent to which the new restrictions are being complied with.
Yanzhong Huang, a senior health fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, said work was under way to verify the effectiveness of some vaccines. Discussions are also underway on what we need to do for hard immunity.
Huang added that a large portion of the population has been vaccinated in other countries, such as Israel and the United Kingdom. The number of daily infections in these countries has also dropped. Sherin Francis, chief executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, said even those who have been vaccinated could be infected with corona. Vaccines are more effective in preventing serious illness or death in the corona. Hopefully, deaths are lower than infections in Seychelles. However, as the rate of coronavirus infection has increased, it has been proven that the vaccine has not been very effective in the country.
Seychelles has been vaccinated with 80 percent of Chinese synopsis. The vaccines came from the United Arab Emirates. In addition, AstraZeneca vaccine has also been given at the Seram Institute of India.
The Seychelles government is in talks with the governments of various countries to expedite the supply of vaccines. Seychelles, however, has stopped using two tickers that are less effective in preventing corona.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says the Chinese synopharma vaccine is effective in 8 percent of adults and those under 60. However, little is known about the effectiveness of this vaccine in older people.
The United Arab Emirates has advised some of those who have been vaccinated with synoform to take a third dose. The country’s government says the synoform vaccine does not provide much protection. However, officials say very few people may need to take a third dose of the synoform vaccine.
Meanwhile, trials in the United States have shown that the estrogen vaccine is 69 percent effective. Synoform and AstraZeneca vaccines are less effective than Pfizer and Modern. The Pfizer and Modern vaccines can be 95 percent effective.
Jennifer Huang Boe, an epidemiologist at the U.S. think tank and corporation, said the vaccine has been able to protect less than half of Seychelles’ population. The steps that need to be taken to protect the entire population are far less than that. But what is surprising is that the infection has increased since late April.
The infection is thought to have increased since tourists began returning to Seychelles. However, there is not enough evidence to link the increase in the number of tourists with the increase in infections.
Seychelles has been open to tourists since March 25. The country’s economy is dependent on tourism. The World Bank says the country’s economic gains fell 13.5 percent in 2020 as tourism revenue fell.
The daily corona infection has more than doubled since the lifting of restrictions in the tourism sector. However, only 10 percent of the tourists who visit the island are identified as corona.
Corona infection on the one hand, on the other, the economy of the tourism sector. Environmental issues In this situation, the Seychelles government needs to coordinate health and resource management, said Malsini Senaratne, director of Eco-Sol, a consulting firm.
