The new outbreak comes as the country continues to respond to the complex Ebola outbreak in the eastern part of the country, the COVID-19[coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, the world's largest measles outbreak, and a complex and long-standing humanitarian crisis. [2] The WHO Representative in Mauritius met the President of Mauritius to discuss COVID-19. They also spoke about the overall health system in Mauritius, and what needs to be strengthened.
