All Moroccan nationals repatriated from the city of Wuhan are in good health, said Monday in Rabat, the head of the division against communicable diseases at the Ministry of Health, Abdelkrim Meziane Belfkih.
The 167 Moroccans, including Sino-Moroccan couples, repatriated from Wuhan are currently under medical observation under the supervision of a national commission composed of the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans residing abroad, the Ministry of the Interior, military medical services and other organizations, explained Meziane Belfkih during a press briefing initiated by the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Rabat.
This commission works in collaboration with the families of the repatriated people and will take, in the coming days, a decision concerning the lifting of the medical observation, he said, stressing that this last measure has a preventive scope and aims to eliminate any possible risk of contamination that may arise.
Meziane Belfkih also said that monitoring and surveillance devices have been put in place at all border crossing points in Morocco, which are able to report to the National Center for Health Emergency Operations (CNOUSP) any individual who presents symptoms for a virological examination. Assuring that the situation in Morocco should not give rise to any concern, the official believes that it is necessary to establish a relationship of trust between the health services and the population, thus inviting the citizen to take the information very carefully which circulate on this subject and which do not emanate from any official source
