The Repercussions of Covid-19 On the field of education

Main Article Content

Morocco was one of the first countries to take a set of precautionary measures aimed at curbing the spread of the virus, especially when it was found that all the cases discovered were from abroad. The goal was not to allow the virus to infect residents of the homeland by closing the air, land and sea borders. This contributed to reducing the number of local cases, without permanently canceling the occurrence of this matter.
In line with the same proactive policy adopted by the state, several measures have been taken aimed at implementing the principle of social separation, which was mainly manifested in the application of lock-down to citizens. The school, which is attended by about a third of Moroccan citizens, has been closed since March 16, 2020, for fear that it will constitute hotbeds of the virus that are difficult to control. Given that schools represent spaces for heavy gathering for children and adults alike, this may provide an appropriate environment for the spread of Covid-19 in the school population.
