Morocco’s Marrakesh is renowned for snake charmers, storytellers and thousands of tourists at the famous Jamaa El Fna square every year.
However, due to the current restrictions imposed by the government to curb the spread of coronavirus disease, the tourism at Marrakesh seems to suffer.
This 11th century UNESCO World Heritage site has no visitors due to the global health crisis of coronavirus pandemic.
This has affected the jobs of thousands of earners like juice sellers, musicians, souvenir sellers and fortune tellers who make a living in this place.
Over 1,500 people have died from coronavirus so far in this North African nation. It has over 86,000 confirmed cases.
We hope coronavirus disease comes to a halt soon so that the world starts resuming its normal tourism activities, helping people all over the world earn their bread and butter.
