Morocco-COVID-19: State of health emergency extended until 30 April 2022
The Government Council examined and adopted, this Thursday, March 24, a draft decree, presented by the Minister of the Interior, extending the state of health emergency throughout the national territory until April 30, 2022.
The state of health emergency, in force since March 2020 and that was scheduled to expire this March 31, seeks to preserve the progress made by Morocco in fighting the pandemic and minimize the danger related to the virus variants.
The state of health emergency enables the government to make swift, necessary decisions to curb the spread of COVID-19.
This umpteenth extension of the state of health emergency comes at a time Morocco is experiencing a noteworthy decrease in daily COVID-19 cases, the North African country having recorded lately less than 100 cases a day and fewer fatalities.
The progress was made possible thanks to the steady continuation of the vaccination campaign.
