The Ministry of Health has confirmed that there are 10 975 cases of Covid-19 and 279 deaths in Eswatini.
The Acting Prime Minister ordered a partial lockdown of Eswatini from January 8 until further notice. All non-essential services are closed and the public is asked to avoid unnecessary travel or movement. Grocery stores, hospitals and pharmacies remain open. We are closely monitoring the situation should further restrictions be implemented.
The U.S. Embassy, Mbabane, is currently teleworking and following the Eswatini Ministry of Health guidance to maintain social distancing. We remain available to provide emergency services for American citizens. Our goal, as always, is to ensure the safety and well-being of Embassy staff and protect others from the spread of Covid-19.
