Former Mauritius Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam has been moved to India for treatment after he tested positive for Covid-19
The opposition Labour party leader left Mauritius aboard an air ambulance and arrived in India on Thursday.
He was transferred from a private clinic by a Mauritian medical team to the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam airport tarmac.
He has not travelled abroad since 2014, when he lost the general elections and was arrested.
The Mauritian government has taken on the responsibility for guaranteeing the costs of the medical trip which will subsequently be paid by the Labour party.
Mauritius has recorded a surge in Covid-19 deaths since last week.Article share tools
