Egypt registers 113 new COVID-19 cases


Egypt recorded early on Wednesday 113 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the country’s total infections to 102,254, said the Health Ministry.

The ministry’s spokesman Khaled Megahed said in a statement that 19 more patients died from the novel coronavirus, raising the death toll to 5,806.

Meanwhile, 811 others were cured and discharged from hospitals, increasing the total recoveries to 91,143.

The recovery rate from the coronavirus in the most populous Arab country has reached 87.7 percent.

Egypt announced its first confirmed COVID-19 case on Feb. 14 and the first death from the viral disease on March 8.

In mid-June, Egypt saw a peak of COVID-19 daily infections and deaths, with a record 97 fatalities on June 15 and 1,774 new cases on June 19, before they started to decline in the first week of July.

Egypt and China have been cooperating closely in fighting the pandemic through exchanging medical aid and expertise.

In early February, Egypt sent a batch of medical supplies to China to help with its fight against COVID-19 and China later sent three batches of medical aid to the North African country.
