 No Coronavirus Case Reported in Morocco: Ministry

No case of coronavirus has been reported yet in Morocco, the ministry of Health said Wednesday.

The three suspected cases reported by the National System of Epidemiological Watch and Surveillance were suffering from seasonal flu and not from the coronavirus, the ministry pointed out in a release.

Rumors about infection cases by this new virus are "unfounded", it said.

To avoid exposure to this virus, the ministry recommends people to wash their hands very often, cover their mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and to avoid close contact with patients with symptoms of respiratory infection.
