Faced with the hesitation of some Moroccans to be vaccinated, Professor Azzedine Ibrahimi, member of the Technical and Scientific Committee for the fight against the pandemic, proposes the suspension of the dissemination of the daily report relating to Covid-19 and the abandonment of free of the vaccine.
After two years of cohabitation with Covid-19, “many Moroccans are beginning to consider the new coronavirus as a simple flu or a cold” and do not adhere to the vaccination operation, noted Professor Azzedine Ibrahimi, director of the biotechnology laboratory at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy in Rabat and member of the Technical and Scientific Committee for the fight against the pandemic.
The doctor called on these fellow citizens to question the fact of reserving many pavilions in hospitals and university hospital centers (CHU) for contaminated patients, while people with serious chronic diseases continue to suffer in silence for two years.
He specifies that “if the coronavirus is similar to the flu, why then free vaccine and the reservation of beds in intensive care units to the detriment of other serious illnesses?”. For him, “we should not wait indefinitely for these people to join the national vaccination campaign”. Professor Azzedine Ibrahimi is also concerned about patients with other illnesses who are waiting to be scheduled for surgery.
If the new coronavirus is considered a simple flu, adds Professor Azzedine Ibrahimi, “vaccination must pay off”, like that against seasonal flu influenza. However, “it will be necessary to leave a period of time to complete the vaccine protocol and end the free vaccine” and the dissemination of figures concerning Covid-19. “We belittle anything that is free,” he lamented.
