The Egyptian Ministry of Health announced that the degree of preparedness has been raised at all land, sea and air ports, with the aim of ensuring the health safety of all arrivals.
The spokesman for the Ministry of Health and Population, Hossam Abdel Ghaffar, added that experts and researchers in the scientific committees of the Ministry of Health, universities and research centers are conducting research related to this mutant, and they are also studying the ability of this mutant to spread globally.
In contact with the “Ten” channel, Abdel Ghaffar indicated that it is still too early to know the extent of this mutant’s ability to evade immune responses caused by vaccines, and whether the severity of the disease resulting from it is more or less than other variables.
He said that the virus, which was discovered in South Africa and Botswana, contains a large number of mutations found in other variants.
He added that there are no confirmations about the new strain of the Corona mutator and whether it is rapidly spreading or not.
