Three members of the Jewish community in Morocco have died after testing positive for the novel coronavirus, The Times of Israel wrote on Monday.

Quoting Channel 12, the newspaper said that the three victims are Casablanca businessman and philanthropist Ari Peretz, 58; his mother Simone Peretz, 75 and businessman Michel Tourgeman, 62. All of them had chronic illnesses.

The two businessmen Peretz and Tourgeman have reportedly attended a large wedding in Agadir before testing positive for the virus. «It was a magnificent wedding, with many attendants, and people unknowingly contracted the coronavirus», a participant told the same source.

The two men were buried Friday at the Casablanca Jewish cemetery while Simone Peretz died on Monday.

«Their death is a great loss for the Jewish community in Morocco», a member of the community said. The same source reports that 16 members of the Jewish community have been «confirmed to be infected and are hospitalized».
