The southern regions of Laayoune-Sakia-El Hamra and Dakhla-Oued Ed Edahab have not reported any new cases since April 8 after reporting the recoveries of some previously confirmed patients.
Rabat – Morocco’s Ministry of Health has confirmed 42 additional COVID-19 cases between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. today, bringing the total number of cases in the country to 4,729.
In the past 24 hours, the ministry has confirmed 160 new cases, two additional deaths, and 173 new recoveries.
The country’s death toll is 173 while the number of recoveries has reached 1,256.
Morocco has started witnessing a growing rate of recoveries compared to fatalities. Many health officials believe that this is thanks to a drug that Moroccan doctors started using that inhibits coagulation in the blood vessels.
