U.S. Grants Morocco $670,000 to Fight COVID-19

Morocco received a U.S. grant of 670,000 U.S. dollars from the United States to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 as confirmed cases soared to 275 in the North African country.


“With longstanding partners like Morocco, we are working together to improve global capacity to contain outbreaks at their source and minimize their impact,” U.S. Ambassador in Rabat Davis Fischer said in a tweet on Thursday.

These investments and the U.S.-Morocco partnership are critical to rapidly and effectively prepare for emerging threats, including the current COVID-19 outbreak, he added.

The grant was offered by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Emergency Reserve Fund for Contagious Infections and Diseases.

Moroccan Ministry of Health confirmed on Thursday 50 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number to 275.
