The increase in the number of confirmed cases in Morocco worries citizens who fear that the balance sheet will get worse.
A virologist said that the increase is completely normal, adding that the cases that were suspected a few days ago have been confirmed today. The doctor stressed that this week is very decisive and that confinement is the only solution to limit the spread of the virus. “Anyone who is infected can infect three people. So people have to comply with containment. The balance sheet will continue to climb before stabilizing and, finally, decline if citizens respect the state of health emergency,” said the virologist.
