The aim of this article is to study the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on public finances in different regions of Morocco. Therefore, we have discussed the role of regions as real partners of regional and local development in the fight against epidemics and national disasters. The method used is spatial econometrics to take into account the geographical location. Thus, the results obtained confirm the positive and significant impact of the variables “hospitalization rate by region and total expenditure by region” on the endogenous variable “total resources by region”, which means that the regions have invested financial resources during this delicate period characterized by the emergence of COVID-19.
