Egypt’s Ministry of Health and Population reported 298 new COVID-19 cases today, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 6,193 since the beginning of the outbreak.
The ministry’s daily report also indicated that Egypt has had 415 fatalities in total, with nine patients pronounced dead earlier today.
The report also confirmed 62 new recoveries, bringing the total number of patients released from quarantine after receiving medical treatment for COVID-19 since the beginning of the outbreak in Egypt to 1,522.
The Egyptian government has recently started to ease restrictions and reopen services and offices that have been closed over the past six weeks, amid a “coexistence plan” to live with the pandemic through precautionary measures while resuming services and economic activities.
The country is currently implementing a nine-hour night-time curfew that will continue until the end of the ongoing Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
