Actress Nihal Anbar, who is responsible for the medical file at the Egyptian Syndicate of Representative Professions, revealed the truth about what was circulated in the media regarding the Egyptian artist Youssef Shaaban’s condition on a ventilator, due to complications from his infection with the new Corona virus.
The “seventh day” website quoted Anbar as saying that Youssef Shaaban “does not need artificial respiration, especially since his oxygen level was not less than 94 percent.”
She explained that Shaban’s condition has not changed since he entered the intensive care unit at Al-Ajoura Hospital on Tuesday.
News had been circulating about the deterioration of the health of the Egyptian artist, which was denied by Dr. Ashraf Zaki, the head of the acting professions, according to the Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram.
