Since the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), new measures and policies has been deployed in the North Africa and Mediterranean region in hasty efforts to save lives and have the pandemic under control, and at the same time save economies and prepare for recovery. This global public health emergency is requiring a global response with far reaching consequences for economic, social and political lives.
The American and European countries as well have faced the most unprecedented health crisis in modern time; therefore, they were also scrambling for ways to limit the impact of such an unseen and widespread pandemic in modern days. Since the beginning of the outbreak, 87 states – both authoritarian and established democracies – have declared emergencies enforcing laws to curb the spread of the virus, which sometimes implies derogations from international human rights conventions.
In this paper, we aim to focus on Morocco`s and Turkish experiences in dealing with the pandemic.

Politically speaking, the rhetoric of populism triumphs, in a world where the threat is global, is indicative of the rise of political populist movements. Such narrative existed and will continue to exist independent from the nature and size of threat.
