Morocco extends curfew for two weeks due to Corona

The Moroccan government has extended until the second of March the night curfew in place since the end of December to contain the Corona virus, after mutated copies of it appeared.

The government said that the curfew will continue from 21:00 to 6:00 in all parts of the country, noting that parties and gatherings are banned and restaurants and shops closed at 20:00.

She stated that the extension of the restrictions comes “after the emergence of mutated copies of the virus.”

More than 1.7 million Moroccans received the Covid-19 vaccine within three weeks, according to Ministry of Health figures, and the authorities hope to vaccinate 25 million people within three months with this free campaign.

The country has a population of 35 million, and a state of emergency has been in effect since mid-March, and it has recorded 478595 cases of Covid-19, including 8491 deaths.
