Egypt's Minister of Health and Population Hala Zayed announced on Sunday that Egypt will receive a new shipment of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine doses, in cooperation with COVAX. 

In a press conference, the minister stressed that no new Coronavirus variants have been found in Egypt so far.

 

Moreover, Zayed noted that the epidemiological situation in Egypt is stable.

 

Last Tuesday, the Ministry of Health urged Egyptian citizens to start registering online in order to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible.

 

In a statement, the ministry stressed that the vaccine is ‘safe and effective.

Egypt’s Health Ministry assured on Monday that sufficient stocks of oxygen are available in all isolation hospitals designated for COVID-19 patients across the republic.

 

In a statement, the ministry added that the state’s strategic stock stands at 2,200,000 million liters.

 

On Sunday, the ministry said in a post on its official page on “Facebook”, that the Coronavirus vaccine is safe, effective and stimulates the immune system to form antibodies to protect the body from the virus.
