CAIRO – 2 June 2020: Veteran Egyptian actress Ragaa el-Gidawy's health condition deteriorated and she was transferred to the ICU of Ismailia Hospital where she is receiving her treatment from COVID-19.

Gedawy announced that she tested positive for the coronavirus last week. The famed actress is currently in the Isolation Hospital in Ismailia.

Famed TV anchor Wael el-Abrashy announced that he previously spoke to Gedawy and that she is in very good health, but her psychological condition is not okay, because she loves to be surrounded by her family and friends.

It is worth mentioning that Egyptian singer Nihal Nabil announced that she and her mother tested positive for the coronavirus.

Nabil and her mother are now receiving the needed treatment in their home quarantine.
"Family visits during Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr are behind the increase in the number of patients infected with COVID-19," presidential advisor Mohamed Awad Tag el-Deen said Sunday.

He added that medical facilities are “still able” to handle the expected numbers.

Although the restaurants and mosques were closed during Ramadan, which are places heavily frequented during the holy month, some people managed to exchange visits despite the curfew which began at 9 p.m.

Tag el-Deen explained in a press conference that a protocol and home quarantine are advised for mild cases, appealing to the public to follow preventative measures.

"The new procedures of diagnosis and treatment allow the immediate handling of coronavirus patients," the advisor stressed.

At the same press conference, Health Minister Hala Zayed stated that the number of quarantine hospitals rose from 18 to 340 with a total capacity of 35,152 beds, 3,539 ICU beds, 2,218 ventilators, 125 CT scanners, and 643 X-Ray devices.
