CAIRO - 5 July 2022: Minister of Trade and Industry, Nevine Gamea, issued a decision to continue banning the export of oxygen, except upon approval approved by the Minister of Health and Population and the Minister of Trade and Industry, for a period of one year, starting from mid-July, provided that the decision is published in the Egyptian facts.
Assistant Minister for Economic Affairs, Ibrahim Al-Sigini, explained that the first decision was issued last year within the framework of the comprehensive state plan to protect citizens from any possible repercussions of the Corona virus and provide the needs of hospitals and medical facilities with the oxygen necessary to provide medical service.
Al-Sigini pointed out that a survey of the Ministry of Health and Population found the necessity of continuing to work with the decision in order to provide liquefied oxygen to ensure the continuation of the medical service for citizens and the absence of any obstacles that affect the medical service provided.
