"It is important to mention that up to this date, Seychelles has not recorded any case of mortality of people fully vaccinated. And this has shown us the efficacy of the vaccination," he said during an exclusive interview with the Seychelles News Agency.

Seychelles began its vaccination campaign in January using Sinopharm vaccines, and the president became the first in the country to receive the vaccine.

"There were no lives lost and the patients have recuperated; this is the efficiency of the vaccine. If the vaccine were not effective, people would have died when infected and there would have been many more people requiring hospitalisation," he said.
