Morocco extends the public health emergency again until January 10 next year
The Moroccan government announced on the 3rd local time that it would extend the national public health emergency again until January 10 next year to cope with the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic.
According to the provisions of the country’s emergency law, the government can impose emergency measures, including travel restrictions, curfews and closures during this period.
This is the ninth time that Morocco has extended the public health emergency since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
At present, Morocco has about 4,000 or 5,000 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 every day, making it one of the countries with the worst COVID-19 epidemic in Africa.
