Yesterday, the Moroccan government announced a set of new measures to limit the spread of Corona, foremost of which is the ban on night movement, from nine in the evening until five in the morning.
It also prevented movement to and from the cities of Casablanca, Marrakesh and Agadir, given that it records the highest injuries.
The government also stated in a statement to close restaurants and cafes at nine in the evening, close bathrooms, sports halls and indoor swimming pools, and not exceed gatherings and activities in closed and open spaces for more than 25 people.
In addition, yesterday, Tunisia received 400,000 doses of coronavirus vaccines as a gift from China to help it curb the spread of infection.
This is the latest international supply of vaccines to arrive in Tunisia since it was exposed to a massive wave of the epidemic at the beginning of last July, before the number of infected people gradually decreased about a week ago.
Within weeks, Tunisia received nearly 4.5 million doses of international donations, and the health authorities, with the participation of the military health and the private sector, are seeking to vaccinate the largest possible number of Tunisians this month to prevent a new wave of the epidemic with the resumption of lessons in educational institutions in mid-September.
The Tunisian Ministry of Health said yesterday that the goal is to reach the vaccination of half of the country’s total population of more than 11 million people, until next October.
In a related context, the WHO Regional Office confirmed yesterday that the Corona virus is mutating and spreading at a faster and more violent pace throughout the Middle East.
The office stated that the Middle East region recorded about 12.6 million cases of corona and more than 236,000 deaths as of July 31.
