The European Union, which began to reopen to visitors from some countries in early July, removed Morocco from the list of safe countries from which travel is allowed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Morocco had recorded a record 6,385 new coronavirus cases over the past week andhas reported a total of 29,644 cases and 449 deaths.

The move brings the number of countries on the list down to ten.  Algeria was removed from the list last week.

The list now includes Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, and Uruguay. 

It is based on criteria including the number of new COVID-19 cases recorded in a country over the last 14 days, whether its case load per 100,000 people is in line with the EU average, and testing capacities.
