Morocco Free of Cholera Since 1997
Amid the outbreak of cholera in neighboring Algeria, the Moroccan government reassures that it has taken measures to keep the country free of the disease.
With the last case registered in 1997, Morocco adopted “a raft of precautionary measures” with a view to preventing the disease, the health ministry said.
The ministry also denied the rumors on social media of the presence of cholera cases in the country.
Neighboring Algeria was hit by a cholera outbreak that has cost at least two lives and affected some 60 people.
The outbreak of the contagious disease in Algeria was blamed on dirty waters but observers are pointing to a failing health system.
