False Report on Seychelles Published
Following reports of an article allegedly in the Khaleej Times, advising people not to travel to Seychelles and claiming that the CDC has alerted of the existence of an unknown mosquito borne virus circulating in Seychelles, the Public Health Authority of Seychelles would like to categorically refute this allegation in the strongest term.
This article is purely malicious and misinformed. There is no virus of the type described in the article in circulation in Seychelles. The CDC and WHO websites are not featuring such advisory on Seychelles.
We take this malicious allegation very seriously and cannot understand how such damaging information can be published without verifying the facts. The false information is damaging to the country and the people of Seychelles.
The Public Health Authority therefore demands a retraction of this false information by any publication that is propagating such falsehoods.
