Concerned about its students in Hubei, Morocco has decided to repatriate the 100 citizens stuck in Wuhan, Hubei province. The majority are students.
The initiative under King Mohammed VI’s instructions received applause from Moroccan citizens abroad and in Morocco.
Hundreds of videos of the Moroccan students have gone viral, calling on the government and King Mohammed VI to intervene for their repatriation.
