China sends Morocco medical aid to fight coronavirus

An airplane loaded with Chinese medical supplies landed in Morocco on Monday to help the North African country avert a coronavirus outbreak.

RAM showed on its social media platforms the airplane, which came after talks between Morocco’s Foreign Minister and his Chinese counterpart.

“China expresses its solidarity with the peoples and countries hit by the virus as they try to face the pandemic and the difficulties relating to it,” Chinese news agency Xinhua said quoting Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Although China is still fighting the pandemic, it will nevertheless help supply other countries facing the virus and facilitate their access to supplies, he said.

“Humanity will triumph against the virus,” he said, promising to share China’s experience against pandemics and send medical staff.

Morocco took strict measures against the spread of the virus imposing a quarantine across the country and asking non-essential businesses to close.

Coronavirus cases reached 143 cases including four deaths as the country watches closely the health conditions of 2117 contact cases.
