On Sunday, Egypt’s Health Ministry reported 399 new coronavirus cases, bringing the country’s total up to 280,394.

 

The total number of COVID-19-related deaths has now reached 16,092 nationwide after the ministry announced 30 deaths.

657 patients were discharged from quarantine at isolation hospitals, raising Egypt’s total number of fully-recovered cases to 210,052.

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

All restaurants, cafés, shops, and malls can now resume normal business hours and stay open later than the previously enforced 9 pm curfew.

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.
