Egypt expects an increase in COVID-19 cases

Egypt says it expects to witness an increase in its daily number of coronavirus infections during Ramadan.

The country’s presidential health advisor said the numbers are expected to increase due to large family gatherings for the evening Iftar meals when Muslims break their daily fast at sunset.

“We are going through a phase of fluctuations in the number of coronavirus infections, and familial infections have become more common recently,” said Mohamed Awad Tageldin, during a televised interview.
