How were the past few days in Morocco and how could it go on?

Coronavirus infections

3,760Apr 242,020Apr 156,260May 4

Using log-linear regression on the data of the previous days, we could infer an increase of reported coronavirus infections in Morocco of about 5.22% each day. That corresponds to a doubling of the numbers approx. every 14 days.

The graph above and the following table show the course of reported coronavirus infections in Morocco assuming that the numbers are following an exponential trend without any slowdown.

What is the mortality rate in Morocco?

Deaths by coronavirus versus statistical death rate

4731352422463Apr 15Apr 24)}

In Morocco, approx. 0.479% of the population die each year. With a population of roughly 36,000,000 people in Morocco, that corresponds to about 473 deaths per day on the statistical average.

The graph above shows the reported daily deaths by coronavirus in contrast to the statistical number as baseline.

To estimate the mortality rate of coronavirus infections, we need to consider that a reported death already showed up in the reported cases a few days before. It is presumed that this lag is between 7 and 14 days. If we assumed that the lag was about 7 days, the mortality rate in Morocco would be approx. 6.2%.

The graph aboves shows the mortality depending on different presumed lag.

How could the occupation of intensive care beds in Morocco develop?

High standardMedium standard44Apr 25

The graph tries to predict the number of required intensive care units in Morocco. We assume the following:

  • The exponential trend of the past few days has continued and reported cases are active for around 12 days. 2% of active cases are so critical that an intensive care bed is required.
  • High standard: There are 30 intensive care beds per 100,000 inhabitants (10,800 total).
  • Medium standard: There are 15 intensive care beds per 100,000 inhabitants (5,400 total).

How can I protect myself and others?

The German Federal Ministry of Health recommends:

  • Keep the greatest possible distance when coughing or sneezing - it is best to turn away.
  • Sneeze into the crook of the arm or a handkerchief, which you can then dispose of.
  • Avoid touching when greeting other people and wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
