According to the German Embassy in Rabat and the Moroccan authorities, the Kingdom of Morocco has halted air travel to and from Germany out of concern for the spread of fresh Corona mutations.
The embassy said that the limitations would be in place starting today, February 23, 2021, and are anticipated to last through March 21.
Furthermore, it is anticipated that no one from Germany, regardless of nationality, would be permitted to enter Morocco, nor will admission from a third country be permitted.
According to the Austrian Embassy in Rabat, the Kingdom of Morocco has stopped flying to and from Germany, Switzerland, and Austria “for health policy concerns.”
Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak in that country, Morocco barred flights to and from Britain and South Africa in December. As a result, Morocco stopped flights with a number of other nations, including Denmark, Australia, and Brazil.
According to the most recent data from the Ministry of Health, Morocco reported its first illness with modified strains of Corona on January 18. Germany reported dozens of instances of this strain, prompting the government to extend the general closure until the seventh of March, with certain exceptions.
Germany has seen a fall in the number of coronavirus infections in recent weeks; today, Tuesday, it reported just 3.3 thousand infections in 24 hours, compared to roughly 33.77 thousand infections on December 18, although the virus’ rate of decline was not faster in recent days.
