Last week, Egypt witnessed an increase in both the death toll and the total number of full recovered patients at the same time. 

Last week also the Egyptian government announced it was taking part in the global testing of Coronavirus medicines.

It is a huge challenge.

Hopefully, this week won't’ be bad one inshallah.

The live update is below.
