Egyptian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat
“I am following treatment protocol in home isolation, and I am following up on my work remotely until fully recovered God willing,” Talaat wrote on his Facebook page.
Over the past two years, a number of Egyptian ministers have either contracted the coronavirus directly, or self-isolated after coming into contact with infected people.
Egypt has witnessed a significant drop in coronavirus infections and deaths over the recent months with the average daily coronavirus infection and deaths tolls in the country dropping to single digits.
Health officials have recently affirmed that quarantine hospitals are almost void from new infections and that Egypt has inched closer to recording zero COVID-19 cases.
Last week, Egypt’s cabinet announced that it is lifting all COVID-related entry restrictions for all travellers, whether Egyptian nationals or foreigners.
