Casablanca maintains anti-coronavirus restrictive measures for two more weeks

Authorities have extended the restrictive measures to contain the coronavirus for the second time for two more weeks as the city remains the hardest hit by the virus in the country.

Recently, over 40% of total cases registered in Morocco were found in Casablanca, Morocco’s most populous city and its economic powerhouse.

On September 7, Morocco has imposed a curfew in the city from 10:00 pm to 5:00 am and ordered distant schooling in addition to a special permit to leave or enter the city.

However, schools are allowed to open their doors for pupils starting October 5.

Meanwhile, Morocco has extended the validity of coronavirus tests for 72 hours instead of 48 hours for inbound tourists.

On October 2, Morocco had 126,044 cases including 2,229 deaths and 104,136 recoveries leaving 19,679 cases still active.
