CAIRO – 8 January 2021: Specialized departments directed by the Egyptian Armed Forces have started on Friday disinfecting and sterilizing crowded facilities.
The departments have deployed teams to sterilize the crowded Mogamma El Tahrir building in Cairo and the surrounding area, as well as the bus stations of Abdel Moneim Riad and Ahmed Helmy.
They also disinfected the metro stations of Anwar el Sadat in Tahrir square and El Shohadaa metro station in Ramses square, as well as Ramses railway station.
In December, Health Minister officially announced that Egypt is facing the second wave of coronavirus.
The Cabinet, in response, announced further measures to curb the spread of the novel virus, including imposing an immediate fine on people not wearing face masks in closed places and public transportation. The decision came into effect on Sunday January 3.
Cabinet spokesman Nader Saad, in remarks to media in December, said the ventilator use rose to 42 percent and that Egypt has prepared 363 hospitals for quarantine, the same number of hospitals for quarantine as that it prepared during the peak of the first wave.
