Abstract

New Caledonia is a French territory in the South Pacific Ocean. While COVID-19 is expanding over the world, the situation on our island seems controlled with a total of 18 documented cases. We report the measures implemented on our island that probably helped contain the epidemic spread. © The Author(s) 2020.
