Sealand COVID-19 Response

covid sealand news b

Microscopic invaders pose new challenges to Sealand’s independence. Thanks for all of your support and concern over the last year. Here are some of your most frequently asked questions:

How many cases of COVID-19 have been reported on Sealand?
We are fortunate to report that at the time of writing, we have had zero reported cases of COVID-19. We understand that this places us in a small group of 13 countries with zero cases, all of which are small island nations. 

When will the Sealand population be vaccinated?
We are lobbying the World Health Organisation, as well as the United Nations in order to secure vaccinations for all of our citizens. With their co operation, we hope to begin offering vaccinations against COVID-19 as soon as possible. 

What is life like on Sealand during the COVID-19 Pandemic?
Being a small island nation with strict immigration control has truly benefitted the people of Sealand during this period, as once out of a mandatory 10 day quarantine following arrival, Sealanders are free to go about their daily activities unencumbered, and in many ways have enjoyed a greater quality of life than many neighbouring countries throughout the pandemic.

How do we safely resupply Sealand during the pandemic?
Supplies are shipped to Sealand by boat. Once hoisted onto the fortress, supplies are quarantined outside in the elements for a minimum of 72 hours to naturally disinfect. Following this, all supplies are cleaned using disinfectant wipes, before entering any inside space, ready for consumption. As part of our standard procedure, we hold a large supply of stores in case of an event such as a severe storm preventing access to supply channels. 

What does this mean for the re-development of the fortress Island?
Further development work to the fortress was planned for the summer/autumn of 2020. This work was pushed back to the spring of 2021. As the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic is still very much fluid, we have taken the decision not to reconvene any development work until our population has been vaccinated to a safe level.

    Capt Sam is absolutely correct. Over here in the “colonies”, the overall death rate has remained constant. The only change is that nobody dies of anything BUT Covid. A couple of family members caught it in November of 2019, (Yes, 2019, that’s why it’s called Covid-19), when a more aggressive varient was around. They’re both fine now, but we were all exposed at that time.
    If you don’t want to catch it, DON’T TOUCH YOUR EYES!

    I am so happy to hear the Sealand Government has responded effectively and efficiently to the pandemic. Hopefully work on the fortress will be able to proceed within the year once the majority of citizens is vaccinated.

  3. So far so good Sealand, but there is no room for complacency. I am shocked that your inhabitants of do not seem to be wearing masks. This is a serious oversight, and if Covid takes hold in your idyllic nation, there is a risk of a very rapid spread of the virus. In fact in view of the very high population density, I would suggest that all citizens wear hazchem suits 24 / 7. My best wishes in your gallant fight.

  4. I’m happy to hear that the COVID situation is doing well on Sealand. I wrote an essay for an international relations class back in September on Sealand and Covid and this information confirms much of my presumptions.

  5. sono felicissimo che la popolazione che frequenta quotidianamente SEALAND, sia esente da questo mostro invisibile , augurandoci che tutto passi in fretta ,ripromettendovi se tutto andra’ bene di venirvi a visitare , con affetto Alfredo
