Rabat – The Moroccan Health Ministry informed on Monday that there are no declared cases of the highly-contagious Ebola disease in Morocco.
Following an Ebola scare, the Ministry said on Wednesday that after examining the Moroccan citizen in question, it turned out that he suffers from Malaria rather than Ebola, adding that he is recovering.
The statement claimed that Guinea, where the disease first emerged nearly two years ago, “is not affected by Ebola” cases at the moment. However, Guinea still struggles to eradicate the deadly virus, while its neighboring country Sierra Leone marked the end of the Ebola outbreak within its borders, last Saturday.
The World Health Organization recorded seven cases of Ebola in Guinea in the past 21 days, according to the organization’s November 4 situation report.
Though Guinea has seen the least cases and deaths from the disease compared to its neighbors, with just over 2,500 dead from about 3,800 cases, , the deadly virus hangs on as residents resist warnings and safer practices, the WHO noted
