The King of Morocco orders urgent medical aid to be sent to Tunisia due to the spread of the Corona virus

The King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, ordered the sending of urgent medical aid to Tunisia to support it in the crisis exacerbating the spread of the “Covid-19” disease, and a statement of the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that King Mohammed VI had given instructions to send two complete resuscitation units with a capacity of 100 beds and 100 respirators and oxygen generators “due to exacerbate the epidemiological situation in this brotherly Maghreb country.”

The statement said that the aid will be transported by Royal Air Force planes, and that it comes "within the framework of the effective solidarity ties between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Republic of Tunisia, as well as within the framework of the ancient brotherhood that unites the two brotherly peoples."

Tunisia is witnessing a significant increase in cases of "Covid-19", and health authorities say that the intensive care units are full and that the situation is catastrophic after the country's success in containing the virus in the first wave of the pandemic last year.
