CAIRO – 10 April 2020: Minister of State for Information Osama Heikal told Egypt Today Thursday that 11,000 beds have been equipped in seven university dorms in Egypt under full medical supervision to receive coronavirus patients.
"This comes to prevent the recurrence of dangerous scenarios that we all see in some countries," Heikal said, adding that the World Health Organization (WHO) will remain the reference in dealing with the crisis in Egypt.
It should be noted that the Egyptian Ministry of Health said on April 8 another 110 people tested positive for the novel coronavirus, bringing the total number of cases in the African country to 1,560, including 305 people who recovered.
The death toll due to infection with the virus also rose to 103, after the ministry confirmed nine new deaths during the past 24 hours.
On the other hand, 29 people infected with the COVID-19 left quarantine upon recovery. This raises the total number of the recovered cases to 305, among 439 people whose results turned to negative.
Earlier on Wednesday, the prime minister gave a speech to announce measures to curb the spread of coronavirus, including extending the curfew and the flight ban until April 23.
