Morocco’s government council, on Thursday, decided to extend the country’s state of emergency until July 10, 2021 to curb the spread of Covid-19 coronavirus.

The government made the decision following its weekly meeting as part of Morocco’s proactive measures to continue to combat Covid-19 and its variants.

Earlier this year, Morocco had decided not to hold Eid-Al-Fitr prayers this year as part of its precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

A statement issued by the Moroccan Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs stated that the decision includes prayer grounds and mosques.
