COVID-19 in Egypt: 919 new cases, 57 deaths reported on Thursday

Egypt’s Ministry of Health and Population on Thursday reported 919 new coronavirus cases, 57 deaths, and 781 recoveries.

A total of 360,435 cases have been reported in Egypt, with 20,594 deaths and 298,865 recoveries.

The country’s fourth wave of the virus is in full force, with daily case figures ten times higher than what was recorded at the end of July.

The Health Ministry has stated that official figures are likely to only represent 10 percent of actual cases.

While Egypt’s Supreme Committee for the Management of Coronavirus Crisis lifted some COVID-19 restrictions back in June, there is still talk of reinstating some measures.

The government imposed a ban on unvaccinated employees from entering their workplaces at all government facilities and unvaccinated university students from entering universities as of November 15, as well as banning unvaccinated citizens from entering any government facilities as of December 1.

The government announced that all university students will be required to be vaccinated in order to attend exams at the end of the first semester.

A statement from the Health and Population Ministry earlier in November said that a total of 41,939.792 coronavirus doses have have been administered in Egypt so far.

The total number of those who received the first dose of vaccine amounted to 27,485,140, and 14,454,652 for the second dose.

Egypt has thus far succeeded in providing all types of vaccines against the coronavirus, according to Government reports and vaccination campaigns which began in January are continuing.
