Egypt’s Ministry of Health and Population on Tuesday reported 949 new coronavirus cases, 62 deaths, and 639 recoveries.
A total of 358,578 cases have been reported in Egypt, with 20,474 deaths and 297,536 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 likely 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 talk of reinstating some measures.
The government imposed a ban on all 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 facility 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 current academic year’s 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.
Egypt’s vaccination campaign began in January with priority groups and later expanded to university students.
