Covid-19: confinement extended for two weeks in New Caledonia – archyde

Containment, in force since September 7 in New Caledonia, is extended by two weeks, due to traffic “Still too high” coronavirus, announced on Friday 1er October the president of the local government.

Louis Mapou, separatist, specified that, until October 10 inclusive, the current strict confinement – closure of schools and non-essential businesses, curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., travel subject to a certificate – would be maintained. Next, “If the indicators evolve favorably, adaptations for a gradual recovery of the economy” will be applied until October 17 before a probable implementation of the health pass.

For more than eighteen months, New Caledonia has been able to boast of being one of the rare lands on the planet spared by the Covid-19 pandemic. This appanage collapsed on September 6, with the detection of three local cases of the Delta variant, whose contagiousness got the better of the airtightness of the sanitary lock at the borders. Since then, the epidemic has been on the rise. Ten people have died from the disease in the past 24 hours, bringing the total death toll since the onset of the Delta variant crisis to 129.
