Moroccan Ministry of Culture has urged all newspaper publishers to suspend any print publication and distribution as of Sunday until further notice.
The ministry said that this procedure falls within the framework of the state of health emergency in Morocco as the number of COVID-19 cases in the country has risen to 109 as of Sunday evening.
The ministry has urged all the press outlets to continue to provide information in alternative formats, it added.
Morocco has announced a public health emergency, restricted movements, and suspended private and public means of transport between cities. The North African country has closed all its land and sea borders and suspended all domestic and international passenger flights over COVID-19 concerns.
