    The city of Kenitra on alert because of the coronavirus

    Through H24info -February 20, 2020 11:00

    The services of the Ministry of Health were on alert after having suspected a Chinese national who was allegedly infected with the coronavirus.

    The health authorities of the city of Kenitra mobilized on Tuesday after an alert concerning a Chinese national who is allegedly infected with the coronavirus. This is what Al Massae tells us in its edition of Thursday, February 20.

    “The Chinese citizen is called Honjo Winzho. He is 32 years old and works in a foreign company located in the industrial area of ​​Kenitra. The man in question was in China and landed in Morocco 21 days ago via Mohamed V airport. He stayed for nearly two weeks in Casablanca, before returning to Kenitra to start his work, "explains the Arabic-speaking daily .


    He added: “The Chinese man was suffering from influenza and had gone to the CNSS polyclinic to examine his state of health. Fearing that the national would be infected with the coronavirus epidemic, an official requested the intervention of the services of the national institute of health ”.

    The Chinese national was urgently evacuated to Al-Idrissi Hospital. He was subjected to extensive tests and examinations to determine the nature of the cold, before being placed in a room awaiting the results of the analyzes.

    A state of fear and panic has spread among the employees of the hospital, despite the assurances given by the management. "The lone patient had symptoms of severe colds that were not cause for concern, and the measures taken are only precautionary measures imposed by the kingdom's health authorities to monitor the epidemic and face the risk of spread," concludes Al Massae.

    Coronavirus - Chinese man suffering from "acute cold" quarantined in hospital in Kenitra (Journal)

    February 20, 2020

    This is information that must be taken with great care. This is a 32-year-old Chinese citizen who works in the industrial area of ​​Kenitra and who was "quarantined" at Al-Idrissi hospital, following "suspicious colds" with the authorities concerned.

    According to the Casablanca newspaper Almassae in its Thursday edition, the Chinese in question arrived in Morocco, via Casablanca airport, 21 days ago. He stayed two weeks in Casablanca before returning to Kenitra on February 8.

    "He suffered from an acute cold for 3 days, before it was decided to put him in the quarantine room ... Pending the results of the medical analysis," the newspaper said, adding that the National Institute of Health is currently involved in the analysis of the patient's blood samples.

    The services of the Ministry of Health are on "alert" after suspecting the patient is probably infected with the Corona virus, said the same source.

    However, hospital officials say the patient "only has a normal cold", which should not be cause for concern and that isolation measures are only necessary precautions, add the newspaper.

    On the official side, the Ministry of Health has not yet communicated on this subject.

                    Coronavirus: the Ministry of Health reassures the state of health of the two other infected people

                    Through H24Info.ma with MAP -March 10, 2020 2:45 p.m.

                    The Ministry of Health wanted to reassure Tuesday on the state of health of the two people whose infection with the coronavirus has been confirmed, a young person recently arrived from Italy and a French tourist. "The two cases are in a rather satisfactory situation and do not suffer from complications," the director of epidemiology and disease control at the ministry, Mohamed El Youbi, told MAP.

                    To date, Morocco has announced three confirmed cases of corona virus, including that of an elderly woman who died on Tuesday and who suffered from chronic diseases. It is, in addition to this case of death, of a young man of 39 years diagnosed positive after having returned from Italy and of a French tourist currently hospitalized in Marrakech.

                    First confirmed case, the young man "no longer has symptoms of the virus but should not leave the hospital until after the completion of all the necessary examinations and analyzes," said El Youbi. In this context, he insisted on the imperative not to confuse the period of incubation of the virus with the period of treatment or hospitalization which varies according to the case and can last up to a month or more.

                    The third confirmed case concerns a French national who arrived in Marrakech on Saturday and is currently under medical care in a city hospital where he is being treated in accordance with health measures. "His state of health does not cause concern," according to the ministry. According to the department, the Kingdom is still in the first stage of contamination with the corona virus since these are cases from foreign countries.

                    The services of the Directorate of Epidemiology and Disease Control at the Ministry of Health assured having taken "the necessary measures for the accompaniment of cases of disease, in accordance with the national and international health security standards in force".

                          After the ten additional cases announced on Saturday March 14th, the Ministry of Health announces on its portal, the appearance of 10 new cases this Sunday March 15th.

                          Changed on March 15, 2020 at 1:20 p.m.

                          Morocco therefore has a total of 28 cases, including one cured and one death.

                          The figure was published directly on the website of the Ministry of Health as well as on its Facebook page without being preceded by a press release as is customary.

                          While remaining at a low level (28 cases in total including 26 cases "active"), the evolution in Morocco follows the curve already seen in European countries with a brutal acceleration.

                          We are awaiting the official communication from the Ministry of Health to find out whether the new cases are local or not, important information for the future.
