As in other cities in the Kingdom, the security services scrupulously ensure that citizens comply with the state of health emergency. The latter was decreed by the authorities in order to contain the risk of the spread of covid-19.
This strong mobilization of the local authorities of the economic capital, in close collaboration with elements of the auxiliary forces, consisted in carrying out rounds in various districts of the city. And its objective was to enforce the curfew by certain “recalcitrant” citizens who have not yet grasped the sanitary scope of confinement at home. They are liable to incur criminal sanctions for civil disobedience when they leave their home without having the official mobility document issued by the authority officer (the moqaddem) of their neighborhood of residence and without valid and urgent reason among those cited in the circular from the Ministry of the Interior.
Remember that the number of cases infected with covid-19 is increasing day by day in Morocco. There are currently 225 confirmed cases, after confirmation of the contamination of 55 people in the last 24 hours.
