COVID-19 in Egypt: 1,007 new cases, 46 deaths on Sunday

Egypt’s Health Ministry on Sunday confirmed 1,007 new coronavirus cases, 46 deaths and 599 recovered cases.

There have now been a total of 261,666 confirmed cases, 15,047 deaths, and 191,332 recovered cases in the country.

A country-wide partial lockdown aimed at curbing cases that has been in place since May 6 is set to end on Tuesday.

All restaurants, cafés, shops, and malls will be able to resume normal business hours and stay open later than the previously enforced 9 pm curfew.

Doctors and officials continue to warn the public to abide by coronavirus precautionary measures and push for vaccination, stating that social distancing is just as important as wearing a mask.

The ministry reported in mid-May that it has vaccinated 1.3 million people since its campaign began on January 24, and over five million have registered on the ministry’s website for the jab.

Egypt is currently using China’s Sinopharm vaccine and the UK’s AstraOxford vaccine, and it has plans to soon begin locally manufacturing China’s Sinovac vaccine and Russia’s Sputnik-V.
