Egypt’s Ministry of Health and Population on Tuesday reported 848 new coronavirus cases, 47 deaths, and 731 recoveries.
A total of 377,081 cases have been reported in Egypt, with 21,457 deaths and 313,782 recoveries.
The Ministry of Health and Population said that the numbers of infections with the coronavirus in Egypt keep varying, and have not crossed the peak of the fourth wave so far.
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.
It also 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.
According to World Health Organization data, 47,838,944 vaccine doses have been administered in Egypt as of December 13.
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.
