King Mohammed VI visited the Marrakech University Hospital on Tuesday. He toured the intensive care unit and the hospitalization unit for earthquake victims.
The earthquake that occurred last Friday left more than 2,900 dead and 5,600 injured. The king, who was being treated for health problems in France at the time of the tragedy, returned to his country.
Last Saturday, he chaired a meeting to evaluate the situation and aid measures for affected populations. Among the measures adopted is the installation of field hospitals to care for the injured in remote areas. Serious cases are transferred to Marrakech.
According to the head of government, Aziz Akhannouch, solutions for the homeless are being studied.
Before leaving Marrakech Hospital, King Mohammed VI donated blood and mingled with the crowd.
