Morocco’s Ministry of Health issued a statement on Saturday, June 27 to reassure citizens and residents that the epidemiological situation is under control despite the emergence of new hotspots.
The government has emphasized that the increase in COVID-19 cases is natural as the country emerges from a three-month lockdown.
Earlier in June, the government decided to reintegrate most of Moroccan provinces to Zone 1 — where residents have fewer restrictions on movement and daily life — as part of the gradual lockdown lifting.
The government moved most major cities to Zone 1, allowing millions of Moroccans to enjoy public spaces, including beaches and restaurants.
