Moroccan monarch contracts coronavirus

Moroccan King Mohammed VI has contracted coronavirus, according to the king's private physician on Thursday.

The monarch “contracted an asymptomatic form of the COVID-19,” Professor Lahcen Belyamani said in a statement carried by the official Maghreb Agency.

On Nov. 9, the Moroccan government decided to lift a night curfew imposed across the country following a drop in the number of virus cases in the kingdom.

In early March, Rabat announced the end of an 11-week wave of the omicron variant of the pandemic.
