Egypt extends curfew for two weeks

The Egyptian Prime Minister, Dr. Mostafa Madbouly, announced the extension of the ban on the movement of citizens and the continuation of the curfew for another two weeks until April 23, starting from eight in the evening instead of seven, and until six in the morning, with all the measures previously taken by the government continuing.

The Prime Minister started the weekly cabinet meeting by extending sincere thanks and appreciation to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, the Minister of Defense and Military Production, and officers and members of the armed forces, for the equipment and preparations reviewed yesterday, under the honor of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, in the context of standing side by side with the civil sector in addressing the emerging Corona virus, and to support it by harnessing its potential to do so.

In the context of his talk about the Corona virus, Dr. Mostafa Madbouly stressed that the steps that have been implemented and the measures and decisions that have been taken regarding economic reform during the past recent years have given the Egyptian state the ability to bear the repercussions and consequences of this major global crisis.

The Prime Minister indicated that there is a committee formed to deal with the damaged irregular employment file, in implementation of President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi's assignments in this regard, within the framework of the state’s efforts to deal with the “Corona” virus crisis, indicating that the mechanism for disbursing the grant decided by the president will be announced. The Republic is eligible for this employment, which guarantees that there is no overcrowding or crowding out on the part of citizens during the disbursement of this grant.

Besides, during the meeting, the Prime Minister stressed that the positive cases infected with the emerging "Corona" virus, which do not show any symptoms, will be transferred immediately to the hostel of youth and university cities, which are currently witnessing extensive preparations to accommodate any numbers transferred to them.
