Morocco is now registering two cases of the Indian variant of Covid-19. They are a Moroccan and an Indian living in Casablanca. The first case, the Indian national who arrived in Morocco just before the suspension of air links, was confirmed on April 24.
Both cases were detected in Casablanca. “This is an Indian and a Moroccan. They are currently hospitalized at Moulay Youssef hospital and all of the contact cases, numbering 17, have turned out to be negative”, said Moulay Saïd Afif, member of the National Scientific Committee for Vaccination and President of the Moroccan Society of medical sciences.
The expert also specifies that the Indian variant is more virulent and more contaminating than the British variant and calls on citizens to “continue to adopt barrier measures until collective immunity is achieved”.
