CAIRO - 29 September 2020: The ُEgyptian Health Ministry said late on Monday that 115 new coronavirus cases were detected, upping the total number of confirmed cases to 102,955.


In a statement, Spokesman for the Health Ministry Khaled Megahed said 18 patients have died from the virus over the past 24 hours, raising the death toll to 5,901.


As many as 506 patients were discharged from isolation hospitals after receiving necessary medical care, taking the number of recovered cases to 95,586 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 while the government has repeatedly urged people to stick to preventive measures to avoid a second wave of the pandemic, particularly with the advent of autumn.
