Morocco’s King Mohammed VI surprised the Moroccans with a decision he took, according to which he ordered the adoption of free vaccination against Coronavirus for all Moroccans.
The MAP said that the Moroccan monarch’s decision falls within the royal directives’ framework to launch an intensive vaccination process against the epidemic in the coming weeks.
According to the agency: The operation aims to provide the vaccine for all Moroccans as an appropriate means of immunization against the virus and controlling its spread, given the gradual return of citizens to their normal life.
On November 9, the Moroccan King presided over a working session devoted to the vaccination strategy against the Covid-19 virus.
The total number of cases infected in Morocco since the start of the pandemic has reached more than 381,000, while 334,000 have recovered, and 6,320 died from the virus.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is showing promise.
About the effectiveness of the anti-corona virus vaccine developed by the American “Pfizer” and the German “Biotech” company, the US Food and Drug Administration announced that the effect of the new product appears from the first dose.
The aforementioned vaccine is given in two doses, 3 weeks apart, but according to the American agency, “It appears that it protects from the virus after the first dose.”
The first country to start the vaccination process
On Tuesday, the British authorities began the largest vaccination campaign in its history, distributing the emerging anti-corona virus vaccine produced by “Pfizer” and “Biotech.”
Britain has become the first country in the world to vaccinate its population with the vaccine, which clinical trials have proven successful by more than 90 percent.
The British hope that the vaccination campaign will be an end to the virus that paralyzed life in the country on a large scale, after more than 1.7 million Britons were infected with “Covid 19”.
The priority will be to distribute the vaccine to residents of homes for the elderly, the elderly over 80 years of age, and health care workers who are most vulnerable to the epidemic.
