On Monday, Egypt reported 871 new coronavirus cases, 43 deaths, and 951 recoveries, according to a daily briefing issued by the country’s Ministry of Health and Population.
It added that a total of 364,033 cases have been reported in Egypt, with 20,770 deaths and 302,259 recoveries.
The country’s fourth wave of the virus is in full force, with daily case figures ten times higher than what was recorded at the end of July.
While Egypt’s Supreme Committee for the Management of Coronavirus Crisis lifted some COVID-19 restrictions back in June, there is still talk of reinstating some measures.
The government imposed a ban on unvaccinated employees from entering their workplaces at all government facilities and on unvaccinated university students from entering universities as of November 15, as well as banning unvaccinated citizens from entering any government facilities as of December 1.
The government announced that all university students will be required to be vaccinated to attend exams at the end of the first semester.
A statement from the Health and Population Ministry earlier in November said that a total of 41,939.792 coronavirus doses have been administered in Egypt so far.
The total number of those who received the first dose of vaccine amounted to 27,485,140, and 14,454,652 for the second dose.
