Morocco Suspends Flights With UK, Imposes Night Curfew
Morocco continues to implement several measures to control the spread of COVID-19.
The Moroccan government announced Monday that it will impose a nationwide three-week curfew, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. starting Wednesday, December 23.
The decision includes the closure of shops, cafes, restaurants, and supermarkets at 8 p.m., and the ban on private and public gatherings.
The new measures also dictate that restaurants in all of the three cities of Agadir, Tangier, and Casablanca, will shut down completely during the period.
The announcement comes one day after Morocco decided to suspend flights with the UK, as a preventive measure against the spread of the new COVID-19 strain.
Today, Morocco said it has recorded 418,002 coronavirus infections and 7,000 deaths.
The country remains under partial lockdown, which was introduced by authorities on July 27, and is to receive vaccines from China’s Sinopharm and the UK’s AstraZeneca.
