- Sidney Vincent Pilay becomes first fatality in Seychelles of COVID-19
- People in Seychelles alarmed
- List of countries left with no COVID-19 death
With 297 total cases since COVID-19 erupted early in 2020, the Republic of Seychelles is no longer one of the few countries left that didn’t record a fatality.
This changed today when Sidney Vincent Pilay lost his battle against this deadly illness.
Seychelles is alarmed and more fatalities and illnesses are expected in this tourism paradise, according to local insiders.
Seychelles has been one of the most cautious countries in the world balancing the danger of this virus and its number one industry, tourism.
Just a month ago Seychelles established a travel bubble with Israel before this virus started spreading again in record numbers in the Jewish State.
Today and one death later, the Republic of Seychelles in the Southern Indian Ocean is still one of the least effected country, and this wake up call remains to be seen on how authorities will respond.
The only countries or regions listed showing no fatalities are St. Vincent, Dominica, Macao, Timor-Leste, Laos, NEw Caledonia, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Falkland Islands, Greenland, Vatican City, Solomon Islands, Saint Pierre Miquelon, Anguilla, Marshall Islands, Wallis and Fortuna, Samoa and Vanuatu.
