Morocco may return to a complete lockdown as coronai (covid-19) cases surged to more than 1,000 a day, the King Mohammed VI warned. 

There has been a jump in infections that has strained health services and triggered protests by medical staff.

As of Thursday, Morocco had recorded a total 47,638 cases, including 775 deaths and 32,806 recoveries.

New cases nationally have surged to more than 1,000 a day since Morocco lifted a strict three-month-long lockdown in late June and hit a record high of 1,766 on August 15.

"If figures continue to increase, the COVID-19 Scientific Committee may recommend another lockdown, perhaps with even tighter restrictions," the king said in a speech.
