Morocco will not resume flights because the “lack of compliance with health protocols” poses a “threat” to the population
The health authorities of the United States have urged their citizens not to travel to Spain due to the contagion situation that the country is experiencing in the framework of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have included Spain in ‘Level four’ considering that there is a “very high level of covid-19”. In this way, Spain joins Gibraltar, Finland, Monaco or San Marino.
«If you must travel to Spain, make sure you are fully vaccinated before traveling. Due to the current situation in Spain, even fully vaccinated travelers can run the risk of contracting and spreading variants of covid-19, “the US authorities have remarked.
Likewise, the CDC has called on travelers who come to the peninsula to follow the usual recommendations, such as the use of a mask or distance between people.
Before these, the CDC had already recommended not to travel to more than thirty countries, among which are the neighboring nations France, Portugal and Andorra, as well as Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Russia or Denmark, among others.
Morocco will not resume travel
The Moroccan Government announced this Monday that the Spanish authorities would not be controlling in an “adequate and strict” way neither the health status of the passengers nor the vaccination passport during the boarding process.
According to a statement from the Moroccan Ministry of Health and Social Protection, Spain poses a “threat” to the Moroccan population due to the “lack of compliance with the health protocols against COVID-19” and has confirmed that it will not resume flights to Spain.
Morocco claims that it has detected at least 19 positive cases of coronavirus from Spain through private flights, either upon arrival or during transit. Thus, the competent Spanish authorities “are far from ensuring rigorous action to control the health status of passengers at airports,” said the Moroccan Ministry.
Moroccan authorities suspended direct flights to and from Morocco on November 29, following the detection of the omicron variant of coronavirus. Initially the measure was adopted for two weeks, but sources in the air transport sector confirmed an extension. According to the latest data, the country has registered one death in the last 24 hours and 102 new positives.
