Morocco Reports First Coronavirus Case

Morocco’s health ministry declared on Monday its first coronavirus case, from a Moroccan man living in Italy.

The man is currently receiving health care at a hospital in Casablanca and his health condition is not critical, the ministry said in a statement without further details.

The World Health Organisation, WHO has since declared it a public health emergency of international dimensions. WHO chief Tedros Ghebereyesus said whiles China had a robust health system to detect and control, his outfit remained concerned about the virus entering countries with weak systems.

Almost all African governments have publicly put in place strict screening at points of entry, especially airports. Ivory Coast, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Botswana have recorded suspected cases. All except Botswana have reported that the tests were negative. African airlines have canceled scheduled flights to China except for Ethiopian Airlines.
