Three military planes carrying 13.5 tons of medical aid each took off Thursday morning from the 3rd Royal Air Force base of Kenitra, bound for Tunisia, as part of the emergency medical aid ordered by  the King for the benefit of this Maghreb country, which is experiencing a worsening epidemiological situation related to Covid-19.

Following the worsening of the epidemiological situation in Tunisia, due to a sharp increase in contaminations and deaths linked to Covid-19,  King Mohammed VI has given His High Instructions to send emergency medical aid to this brotherly Maghreb country.

The medical aid ordered by His Majesty the King consists of two complete and autonomous resuscitation units with a total capacity of 100 beds. It also includes 100 respirators and two oxygen generators with a capacity of 33 m3/hour each.

Other military planes will fly to Tunisia in the coming days to continue the delivery of this medical aid, which is part of the ties of active solidarity between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Republic of Tunisia, as well as the genuine brotherhood that unites the two brotherly peoples.
