Egypt reports over 200 new coronavirus cases for 7th day in a row

Post by DJKeefy »

That's just from the few they tested :roll:

Egypt’s Health Ministry on Wednesday confirmed 227 new coronavirus cases, bringing the country’s total number of confirmed cases up to 109,881, ministry spokesperson Khaled Megahed announced.

The total number of COVID-19-related deaths has now reached 6,405 nationwide, after the ministry announced 11 deaths on Wednesday.

122 patients were discharged from quarantine at isolation hospitals, raising Egypt’s total number of fully-recovered cases to 100,662.

The Egyptian government imposed in March strict precautionary measures to limit the outbreak of coronavirus, which included setting curfews, banning large gatherings, and closing restaurants, theaters, and cinemas.

The measures also include a mask mandate that applies to mass transportation and any public indoor space.

During a Cabinet meeting last week, Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly warned the public that unmasked riders, employees and shoppers will be fined LE4,000.

Madbouly added that the government may mandate more additional measures in the case of public noncompliance, which will likely add additional strain on the country’s economy.

Starting December 1, the government will impose mandated closing times for retail businesses, restaurants, and cafes across Egypt.

Several countries have imposed full lockdown measures following a second outbreak of the virus that began in October.

I am no longer worried! A Coptic friend was relieved to see me wearing an Ethiopian silver cross. He promised me that if I wear it night and day, I shall be protected against Corona virus. Not that I need it - Luxor is safe, you know.
