coronavirus in Egypt COVID-19

Progress has been made in expanding the quantity of peripheral laboratories that are now able to test for COVID-19, and consideration are going to be made in engaging overall laboratory capacities. Across the country, 17 laboratories now have the capacity to check cases. a further four are going to be added soon and university laboratories also will be engaged.

 Egypt’s strong disease closed-circuit television and call tracing efforts have proven effective in controlling managing sporadic and clusters of cases before they will spread. Recent border closures now provide a chance to boost screening and rapid testing capacity employing a risk assessment approach. Building on this well-structured Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) programme, WHO will work with national health authorities to boost the isolation, quarantine and referral mechanisms, and proportion IPC practices to forestall transmission in any respect levels to confirm that patients and doctors are protected. Significant efforts are made to confirm the general public is updated on this situation, including working with other sectors to achieve vulnerable populations. Greater coordination and partnerships with civil society, NGOs, and therefore the media will make sure that the general public is in a position to create informed decisions, without succumbing to mistrust and therefore the stigma related to the disease.
