Morroco’s Prisoners Positive

Morroco’s Prisoners Positive for Covid-19: Some 313 coronavirus cases have been reported in Moroccan prisons following mass testing.

Prison authorities say Ouarzazate prison recorded 303 cases, while 10 other cases were in Oudaya in Marrakech and Ksar Kebir prisons.

Most of the cases involved prisoners, but a small number of prison warders were also diagnosed.

The mass testing started after one person in Ouarzazate prison tested positive last week.

There are nearly 80,000 inmates in Moroccan prisons. In early April, more than 5,654 inmates were pardoned by the king to reduce the risk of spreading the virus in notoriously overcrowded prisons.

Morocco has 4,252 confirmed cases of coronavirus including 165 deaths.
