The epidemiological situation is going from bad to worse with many cases of death recorded, especially after Eid Al-Adha. This multiplication of the number of deaths caused fear within the population.
Moroccans are now scrutinizing the statistics with concern. After the record 15 deaths on Sunday, the number worsened on Monday with 19 deaths, now bringing the total of people who have succumbed to the coronavirus to 435 since the start of the coronavirus epidemic. The results of the day Wednesday, meanwhile, reported 1283 new cases, 28700 in total.
Several health specialists warn about the risk of contamination, due to the presence of asymptotic carriers. For Ali Lotfi, president of the Moroccan network for the defense of the right to health, the assessment of contamination communicated by the Ministry of Health does not reflect reality. According to him, the new infections are well above the official figures announced daily by the Ministry of Health. This is due to the late onset of symptoms in patients and disparities in the distribution of screening resources nationwide.
As for the president of the Moroccan network for the defense of the right to health, he questions the government’s responsibility in managing the health crisis and deplores the lack of preventive means. According to Ali Lofti, the increase in deaths is attributable to the virus or to the high morbidity suffered by the poorest sections of society.
