Morocco: Are we heading for another lockdown?

As Morocco continues to record worrying covid-19 figures, several citizens have expressed concern about the risk of further containment in the Kingdom.

In this regard, a medical source of Le Site info was keen to reassure Moroccans, ruling out the hypothesis of a reconfinement despite the meteoric rise in cases of contamination and the spread of the Omicron variant.

“The measures taken a month ago by the authorities have made it possible to avoid a “health hecatomb”. Now it is the turn of citizens to strictly respect the preventive health measures, wear masks and avoid unnecessary gatherings,” says our source.

He added that taking the thirdème dose is essential to strengthen immunity and avoid severe forms of covid.
