CAIRO - 3 June 2020: Member of the Parliament's Health Committee Mahmoud Hamdi Abul-Khair warned of some wrong practices that are wasting all the efforts made by the state to confront the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Abul-Khair warned against the continued crowding to purchase food commodities despite the government's repetitive warnings about the necessity of committing to social distancing and wearing the mask in crowded places.

Despite the commitment of some people, there are still some who ignore dealing with the crisis, which burdens the country with huge losses.

The MP explained that raising the citizens' awareness is the only way to prevent the spread of the virus, and this is what the government has been seeking from the first moment of the crisis, as several campaigns were launched, and a package of decisions was taken in this regard.

Abul-Khair also pointed out that the Ministry of Supply had previously announced in more than one statement that the strategic stock is safe and that there is no reason for concern and panic to prevent price hikes.

He further appealed to the citizens to follow the measures announced by the government regarding preventing the outbreak of the virus, and not to go out of the house except in case of necessity to prevent the spread of the virus.
