Morocco-COVID-19: State of health emergency extended until May 31, 2022

The Moroccan Government decided this Thursday at the cabinet’s weekly meeting to extend the state of health emergency until May 31, as part of efforts to stem the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Government Council examined and adopted, this April 28, a draft decree, presented by the Minister of the Interior, extending the state of health emergency throughout the national territory until May 31, 2022.

The state of health emergency, in force since March 2020 and that was scheduled to expire this April 30, 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 vaccination campaign.
