The Moroccan government announced on Monday that it would be sentenced to a prison sentence in Tangier (north), given the increase in coronavirus cases, a measure that also implies a ban on entering and leaving the city.
The Home Office has detailed that the measure implies the cessation of both public transport services by road and rail, and “increased control” to ensure that the population respects the restriction.
He also pointed out that movements within Tangier require a special permit issued by local authorities, according to the Moroccan state news agency MAP. The ministry has said that easing of measures will depend on the development of the epidemiological situation.
The Department of Health confirmed a total of 76 new cases of coronavirus on the last day during the day, up from a total of 15,821, with 253 deaths and 12,676 recovered from COVID-19 to date.
On the other hand, it has made a new appeal to the population to “show responsibility and patriotism” and to respect sanitary regulations and the measures taken by the authorities to curb the spread of the virus.
