A partial curfew in Egypt began on March 25 to last for 15 days as a protective measure against the spread of coronavirus among a bundle of rules that include decreasing the working hours of stores and shopping malls, and the closure of restaurants and cafes. The Egyptian Armed Forces sterilized Al-Azhar Street, Al-Hussein Square, and the area surrounding Al-Hussein Mosque.
