Written by FDM

In light of the rise in the number of Covid-19 cases and death toll, the government approved, on Thursday morning, August 6, the extension of the state of health emergency.

After originally declaring it on March 19, Saad Eddine El Othmani confirmed, in a post on his Facebook account, that the Governing Council approved on Tuesday, August 6, a draft decree extending the state of health emergency to counter the coronavirus epidemic, until September 10, and an amendment to the decree-law relating to the promulgation of provisions for the state of health emergency, allowing the payment of conventional fines in the case of health measures violations.

Morocco has extended its state of emergency four separate times over the course of five months. The month-long extension will mark the fifth extension of the state of emergency and will move the country into its sixth month.
