Coronavirus: Morocco Establishes Health Control at International Ports and Airports

Morocco has established health control at international ports and airports for an early detection of any Coronavirus imported cases and halting its spread, said on Saturday the Ministry of Health.

Given the latest developments in the global epidemiological situation, marked by the confirmation of the new virus in other countries, especially in Europe, Morocco has established health control at international ports and airports, for an early detection of any Coronavirus imported cases and halting its spread, said the department in a statement.

The ministry said that it continues to consider "the risk of virus spreading on the national territory as low and confirms, once again, that no suspected or confirmed case has been registered to date".

It reassured the public opinion that the national system for epidemiological watch and surveillance has been strengthened, and that the virological diagnostic mechanism and the health care system for possible patients are operational.
