    (ANSAmed) - RABAT, AUG 4 - A series of anti-Covid measures eased at the beginning of June were reinstated last night in Morocco, including a ban to travel to Casablanca and two major tourist attractions, the cities of Marrakech and Agadir, for those without a vaccine passport. The nighttime curfew, which strated at 11 PM until 4:30 AM, was pushed back to 8 PM and extended until 5 in the morning.

    Other measures decided by the Moroccan government included a ban on gatherings of more than 25 people, a limit for hotels to 75% of capacity and 50% for restaurants.

    Yesterday, the country recorded 60 deaths caused by the virus. A total of 642,683 cases, including 9,949 deaths, were recorded since the start of the screening in March 2020, according to an official report.

    With its 36 million residents, the kingdom is hoping its immunization campaign will halt the virus: over 14 million people have received the first dose of the vaccine against Covid-19 and more than 10 million the second.

    Since the end of May, Morocco has gradually eased restrictions tied to the pandemic and has opened its borders to international travellers, under certain conditions. (ANSAmed).
