Covid-19: The United States removes Morocco from the list of high-risk destinations

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has removed Morocco from its list of high-risk destinations for travelers in terms of the spread of COVID-19. The Kingdom, which was previously among the so-called high-risk countries (level 3), is now placed in the category of travel destinations with a moderate risk (level 2), according to the latest update. According to the CDC, level 2 applies to countries that have reported between 50 and 100 new cases of covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 28 days. A total of 26 new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Morocco in the past 24 hours, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection said on Monday. According to the ministry, the number of first-timers reached 24,891,938, that of people who received two doses amounted to 23,384,674, while 6,751,903 people had three injections of the vaccine. The new infection toll brings the total number of contaminations since the first case reported in Morocco on March 2, 2020 to 1,264,342, while the number of recovered people has increased to 1,247,652, i.e. a recovery rate of 98, 7%.
