The covid-19 vaccines are worse than useless. 90,000 AstraZeneca are 50,000 SinoPharm offer no protection in Seychelles, so much for herd immunity by mid March.

The attack was by DarkSide, an alleged Russian cyber group that has a history of such attacks but has so far proven elusive to law enforcement agencies in the West. The attack shut down the pipeline until the company paid a ransom of $5 million in Bitcoin, but even then supplies remained tight as the system takes time to get back to full capacity.
