EgyptAir

On Wednesday evening, the 1st of April, a flight carrying 87 Egyptian passengers who have been stranded in France due to the Coronavirus all this time have been brought back home. Such news has left the Egyptian citizens happy with all the efforts that have been put in getting their people safely home.

So far, the toll number of people that have tested positive with the Coronavirus in France has been 52,000 cases. Yes, such a big number.

If you remember, back in March, it was decided by the Egyptian government, Prime minister, and President Abd el Fattah el Sisi himself, that international flights are to be suspended until April the 15th to ensure the precautionary measures against the pandemic.

Luckily, the passengers that had arrived safely back to their homeland were rushed into quarantine at a nearby hotel. The hotel they had checked into was fully prepared and equipped for quarantine. The flight that came in was by the infamous airline , Egypt Air.

Nader Saad, Egyptian Cabinet Spokesman has filled us in on the details and procedure of bringing back the stranded Egyptians. Apparently, the nationals abroad were not allowed to come back home unless they fully agree on the decisions as well as signing a quarantine commitment letter. This meant that the citizens had to agree to being quarantined as soon as they arrive.

The enforcement of signing this later was decided after citizens coming back from Kuwait recently had refused to be quarantined, which is why drastic measure were forced to be taken. On a positive note, Saad stated that he had urged businessmen to deal and take care of the expenses made for the quarantine for the evacuated Egyptians.

So far, to keep our readers well informed, the Egyptian Ministry of Health had recorded yesterday that there are 544 new cases that confirmed positive for the coronavirus. The number of deaths have been 46 out of 710 ,while 157 of these people have recovered.

Khaled Megahed, Ministry’s Spokesperson, claimed that 205 people had proven negative while 5 Egyptians had died. Out of these 5 people, only two of them died right before checking in to a hospital. As for the 54 patients that had shown positive for the virus, they had contracted the virus from people who had tested positive abroad.
