Morocco and Ebola

There is not ebola in Morocco, but the other day the BBC Arabic had a call-in show or was maybe interviewing a panel of experts on precisely this topic anyways.

It was because Morocco is refusing to host the African Cup, which is a soccer tournament, because they are afraid that ebola will spread to their country. So, the African Cup has kicked Morocco out of the tournament altogether.

The callers into the program had all sorts of opinions from:

Morocco is letting fear-mongering run away with them, and now we won't be in the tournament, and it's not fair.


Morocco did what they had to do.
