Egypt Warns against Non-Compliance with Heath Precautions

The Health Ministry in Egypt continues to deploy teams to the beaches to raise awareness about the coronavirus risks, amid warnings from parliament against non-compliance with health precautions.

The teams have been dispatched to the northern coast amid a rise in vacationers in the region.

The teams have been tasked with encouraging people to respect preventive measures against communicable diseases, as well as briefing people on the services provided by the Health Ministry.

The teams have also been handing out face masks and hand sanitizers to the people.

The Ministry stressed it was continuing its efforts throughout the country to combat the coronavirus and other infectious diseases.

Despite a drop in infections, the coronavirus is still present in Egypt, warned head of the parliamentary Health Committee Dr. Ashraf Hatem.

The Health Ministry said Sunday night that 39 new coronavirus cases were detected, upping the total in the country to 284,024.

As many as 122 patients were discharged from isolation hospitals after receiving necessary medical care, taking the number of recovered cases to 227,612, it added.

Six more patients have died from the virus in the past 24 hours, raising the death toll to 16,487.
