The Egyptian Minister of Higher Education expected that the number of people infected with Corona virus in Egypt will reach 20 thousand before the end of May, while President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi considered that the rates of increase in corona infections are a normal development.
The Minister of Higher Education, Khaled Abdel Ghaffar, emphasized that the government has been working since the beginning of the Corona crisis, in full coordination among all its agencies, and data analysis science and artificial intelligence technology are used to monitor the spread of the virus.
He pointed out that the reality of daily infections with the Corona virus is analyzed, and through it, predictable cases and prevalence can be predicted with a measure of the percentage of growth in each case until we reach the point at which we can talk about the end of the epidemic in Egypt.
He pointed out that research revealed that the coronavirus carrier can infect at least 3 people, and considered that what is monitored and issued by the government about the virus’s developments is based on purely scientific rules.
He stressed that any increase in the numbers of the injured would be expected several weeks before, revealing that expectations indicate that the number of injuries in Egypt will reach 20 thousand injured before the end of May.
For his part, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said, “The rates of increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infection are now considered a natural development.”
He added during the opening of a number of development projects in Alexandria, on Thursday morning, that “it is possible that these numbers are less or more than the current numbers in simple proportions, but this depends on the actions of the Egyptian people, not the health system.”
He stressed the need for citizens to abide by precautionary instructions and procedures, to reduce injuries as much as possible.
On Thursday morning, the Egyptian President witnessed the opening of the Bashaer Al-Khair 3 project and a number of other development projects in Alexandria Governorate.
