World’s Most-Vaxxed Nation Curbs Jabs As COVID Cases Rise

By Kamlesh Bhuckory and Antony Sguazzin

Seychelles, which has fully vaccinated more of its population against the coronavirus than any other country, has closed schools and canceled sporting activities for two weeks as infections surge.

The measures, which include bans on the intermingling of households and the early closure of bars, come even as the country has fully vaccinated more than 60% of its adult population with two doses of Covid-19 vaccines. The curbs are similar to those last imposed at the end of 2020.

Despite all the exceptional efforts we are making, the Covid-19 situation in our country is critical right now, with many daily cases reported last week,” Peggy Vidot, the nation’s health minister, said at a press conference Tuesday.

The Indian Ocean archipelago, which has a population of about 98,000, is dependent on tourism for much of its foreign exchange and acted quickly to begin vaccinations in January using a donation of Chinese vaccines from the United Arab Emirates. It has procured other vaccines since.

By April 12, 59% of the doses administered were Sinopharm vaccines and the rest were Covishield, a version of AstraZeneca Plc’s shot made under license in India.

To date, 62.2% of its population is fully vaccinated, according to the Bloomberg Vaccine Tracker. That compares with 55.9% for Israel, the next most vaccinated nation.

‘Global Implications’

 The number of active cases in the nation rose to 1,068 on May 3 from 612 on April 28, according to the health ministry.

Of those cases, 84% are Seychellois and the rest are foreigners, Daniel Lucey, Clinical Professor of Medicine at Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine, said in a blog post. Just under two-thirds of those are either unvaccinated or have only had one dose, and the rest have had two doses, he said.

While data on genetic sequencing is not yet available for infections in April, the B.1.351 variant, first identified in South Africa late last year, was found in the Seychelles in February, he said. AstraZeneca’s vaccine appeared to be less effective against that variant in a study, and South Africa halted plans to use it.

A comparison between Sinopharm, Covishield, and unvaccinated infected persons” could be done using genetic sequencing and data on the severity of their infections, Lucey said. “Given the widespread international use of these two vaccines, there are global implications to what is happening now in the Seychelles.”

Officials at the press conference gave little detail on what could be behind the infection surge other than to say people were taking fewer precautions against the virus than before and the surge may be due to celebrations after Easter.

Jude Gedeon, Seychelles’ public health commissioner, didn’t answer calls made to his mobile phone or immediately answer a text message.

    You are better off unvaccinated, than getting inoculated with a Chinese jab.
    Let us put it very bluntly- Chinese vaccines are trash and they do not work.
    The Seychelles has realised this the hard way.
    A strategically located Vanilla Island country- the Seychelles has really become a victim of Beijing’s ruthless “vaccine diplomacy”.

    Is this a version of melamine in the milk?

    A bigger problem is governments acting on known cases alone, high cases of infection don’t constitute a pandemic!

    • Seychelles, being a small group of islands, would be an ideal place to trial the widespread mass use of HCQ and Ivermectin. The world would then see very quickly whether these two safe and cheap drugs work or not. Of course such a trial is highly unlikely because the outcome is pretty certain and the result would go against The Plan.

  2. What happened to that Xi Jinping Ares kisser that was on YSB for a while 5 or 6 months ago? he could most likely come up with a good excuse why everything that comes out of that septic toilet bowl China is 100% crap unless it’s got a huge dose of international input into it’s manufacture.
    That vaccine is the mirror image of the ACTUAL Chinese system at play, filthy bling that doesn’t work and make no mistake their armed forces despite their bluster are the same.

  3. Debate about Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte sidling up to China.

    …. Sinopharm has not yet been approved in the Philippines.
    Both Sinopharm and Sinovac are expected to receive WHO approval this week. ….

    …… possibly had multiple side effects, he added, “let’s just pull them out, so that there’s no issue”. ….

    ….Both Chinese shots are inactivated vaccines, which work by using killed viral particles to expose the body’s immune system to the virus without risking a serious disease response. ….

    Interesting that about 50% of the Philippines is “vaccine hesitant”, even though it is supposedly a Covid “hard hit” country in Asia
