On Wednesday, Egypt’s Health Ministry reported 1288 new coronavirus cases, bringing the country’s total up to 486,381.

The total number of COVID-19-related deaths has now reached 24,132 nationwide after the ministry announced 22 deaths.

About 981 patients were discharged from quarantine at isolation hospitals, raising the total number of fully-recovered cases to 416,471.

The recent spike in infections comes as Egypt continues to push ahead with efforts to expand its vaccination campaign to vaccinate 70 percent of the population by the second half of 2022 amid the outbreak of the omicron variant.

Egypt has administered a total of 37.8 million first vaccine doses and 26.9 million second doses since the start of the mass vaccination campaign in January of 2021, according to the health ministry’s daily statistics.

As many as 628,111 booster shots have been administered in recent weeks as well, bringing the total number of doses administered since the start of the campaign to 65.4 million.
