CAIRO - 23 September 2020: The Health Ministry said Tuesday that 113 new coronavirus cases were detected, upping the total number of confirmed cases to 102254.
In a statement, Spokesman for the Health Ministry Khaled Megahed said 19 patients have died from the virus over the past 24 hours, raising the death toll to 5806.
As many as 811 patients were discharged from isolation hospitals after receiving necessary medical care, taking the number of recovered cases to 91,143 so far, the spokesman said.
Egypt had witnessed a slight increase in the daily tally of coronavirus cases in the past few weeks, reversing a low of 89 on August 22, the lowest daily infection toll since early April.
The slight rise in cases comes the government repeatedly urged caution to avoid a second wave of the pandemic, particularly with the advent of autumn.
