Egypt may have to impose full lockdown to fight coronavirus – official
Egypt could impose a full lockdown in the coming period to fight off the recent spike in the number of coronavirus cases, the country’s presidency health adviser said Sunday.
To date, Egypt has registered 9,400 cases, including 525 fatalities and 2,075 recoveries.
It took Egypt 51 days to record its first 1,000 cases, eight days to its second 1,000, less than three days to its the latest 1,000 cases, and almost two days to its 1,000.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s health adviser Mohamed Awad Tag El-Din said in a phone interview that the preventive solution to avoid infection and escape the “nightmare of coronavirus” is to follow the country’s precautious measures.
