CAIRO – 4 May 2020: Health Ministry has denied in a press release falsely warning citizens suffering from Covid-19 symptoms not to go to hospitals and wait for medical team visits at home.
This is false statement and has never been issued by the Health Ministry, the statement said.
The Health Ministry has not dispatched any medical teams on home visits to examine suspected coronavirus cases, it said, adding that all hospitals that receive Covid-19 patients are still doing so.
It urged citizens not to be deceived by such rumors that are meant to create panic, stressing all information should be obtained from official sources.
The Ministry of Health has designated 200 Coronavirus vaccination centers nationwide, equipped with clinics and lounges for citizens who received the vaccination to check on their health.
It had announced the extension of work in Corona vaccines dispensing units and centers until ten in the evening throughout the republic, during the blessed month of Ramadan, and it would be from nine in the morning until ten in the evening. .
