Covid-19: Additional Preventive Measures Could Be Adopted (National Steering Committee)

The national steering committee set up since the declaration of cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome due to COVID-19 announced on Sunday that it continues to monitor the epidemiological situation internationally and that additional measures would be undertaken if necessary.

"While recalling that no cases of the disease have been detected in our country, the committee assures that it continues to monitor the epidemiological situation internationally and that additional measures would be undertaken if necessary," said a statement by the committee.

These measures include "the postponement of sports and cultural events scheduled in our country, the cancellation of mass gatherings and the management of travel to and from countries with community spread" (see list published and regularly updated on the website of the ministry of Health https://www.sante.gov.ma/Pages/Accueil.aspx), added the same source.

The government has already called on all travelers returning from these countries to avoid the use of collective assembly areas, to monitor their temperature daily for 14 days and to consult a health facility at the first sign of illness.
