118 people, including babies and children, arrived Thursday at the Dakhla airport on a Royal Air Maroc (RAM) flight from Mauritania as part of the repatriation of Moroccans stranded abroad due to the pandemic of the novel coronavirus.

This is the second group of Moroccans repatriated from Mauritania, coming from Nouadhibou, after the arrival on Sunday of the first group (151 people) from Nouakchott.

This operation has benefited people with chronic illnesses and tourists in precarious situations. It was conducted in full compliance with the precautionary measures and the health protocol in force to guarantee a safe and reassuring reception for these passengers, under the supervision of the competent authorities.

Covid-19 diagnostic tests were carried out on the 118 passengers who then boarded buses bound for several hotels in the city of Dakhla, where they will be confined for nine days as part of the necessary medical follow-up, the aim being to ensure that they will not constitute a danger to themselves or their families and entourage.

In a statement to MAP, director of the airport, Abdelmounaim Aoutoul stressed that this operation took place in compliance with preventive measures and the health protocol in force, noting that significant resources were deployed to prevent any health risk, notably the distribution of masks, the installation of distributors of hydroalcoholic gels, and the use of thermal cameras.
