Thanks to Lucie Lecomte for sending the link to this report in Libération: "El Pais" would have detected cases of Ebola in Morocco and around the world. Excerpt from the Google translation:
"No cases of Ebola have been recorded so far in Morocco."
This is a clear and reassuring that officials from the Department of Health statement we have repeated Tuesday after the publication of an article on the portal of the Spanish newspaper El Pais reports of a possible quarantine of people with Ebola virus in several countries including Morocco, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines. This is, according to the paper, travelers from countries where the virus is ravaging like Liberia.
Professor Abderrahmane Maâroufi, director of epidemiology and the fight against diseases at the Ministry of Health, has categorically denied the existence of the kingdom of people with the virus. All alarmist information relayed by the media so far are "false alarms" Has he stressed, adding that the ministry would like to reassure the public and it will inform with objectivity and diligence of all suspicious cases that could potentially be detected.
Citing the case of death of a Liberian belong at the end of last month at the Mohammed V that the rumor had attributed to Ebola airport, he reminded us that the analyses conducted by the Department of Health had confirmed the contrary and that official press release published on this subject had stated that death was due to a heart attack.
The ministry had also issued early this month another statement to assert that "the woman, aged 76, who was returning from Umrah on Friday at the Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca died of "pulmonary edema acute and not the Ebola virus".
