Dr. Hossam Hosni, head of the Scientific Committee to Fight Coronavirus, said that the anti-COVID-19 protocol is constantly being updated in line with local and international studies.
“The death rate of COVID-19 in Egypt is in line with the global rates; however, we are not satisfied, as we are trying to reach 100% cure rates for all Egyptians,” added Dr. Hosni.
The protocol set up in Egypt to cure COVID-19 patients has been updated four times so far, Hosni said, stressing that it meets international standards.
He further clarified that the ministry plans to add to the protocol more medicines that have proven efficiency in faster recovery.
According to the Ministry of Health, the number of recovered patients has reached 137,837 cases so far.
