Books – Ahmed Jumaa:
Two official sources at the Ministry of Health revealed that about 55,000 analyzes of the emerging corona virus (Covid-19) have been carried out in Egypt so far.
As of Thursday evening, the Ministry of Health had recorded 2,673 cases of coronavirus, including 596 cases that had been cured and discharged from isolation hospitals, and 196 deaths.
A source said in statements to Masrawy that tests are being conducted for those who show symptoms of the virus, as the ministry does not yet adopt a plan to expand the analysis.
He added: “The World Health Organization considered that self-isolation or home is the best way to deal with HIV infections, especially since most of them do not show symptoms or symptoms are mild.”
The source added that “the scientific basis is the one who rules us in conducting the analysis and surveying contacts according to the opinion of the World Health Organization.”
