Corona situation in Germany worse than expected? Morocco cuts air traffic to the Federal Republic

The corona numbers are also rising again in Germany. Morocco has now reacted and unceremoniously cut air traffic to and from Germany.

Rabat – The Corona * numbers are currently rising again in a number of countries. This is also the case in Germany. In Morocco, on the other hand, the numbers are currently falling and so the country is now taking a tough step: It is cutting flight connections with Germany. Flights to and from Great Britain and the Netherlands are also prohibited for the time being. Here too, the corona numbers had recently increased.

Corona numbers are increasing: Morocco cuts flight connections to Germany

The measure will take effect on Thursday night and will apply “until further notice”, the Moroccan airport authority announced on Wednesday. All flights from the three countries in Europe as well as all flights from Morocco to these nations are affected by the regulation. The rule should apply from 11:59 p.m. (local time, Thursday 00:59 a.m. CEST).

According to the national airline Royal Air Maroc, this decision was made due to the “development of the pandemic” in Germany, Holland and Great Britain. At the beginning of October, Morocco canceled all flight connections with Russia for the same reason.

The background: The number of corona infections in Germany in the Netherlands has been rising continuously for days *. The 7-day incidence in Germany had risen from 65.4 to 80.4 within one week.

Corona situation in Great Britain: Almost 50,000 new infections in one day

Tens of thousands of new infections are currently recorded in the UK every day. There were almost 50,000 new infections on Monday alone. A lockdown is excluded, however. In addition, the British government announced on Tuesday that it was observing a new subspecies of the highly contagious Delta variant. But it is still unclear whether the new subspecies is spreading faster, it said.

In Morocco, however, the number of new infections and corona deaths is falling. A vaccination campaign for the administration of a third vaccination dose is currently underway. A health passport will also be introduced on Thursday to prove a vaccination, negative test or recovery from Covid-19. (rjs / afp) * Merkur.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
