EgyptAir Goes Viral : #dontrushchallenge

EgyptAir

Since the calendar struck 2020, we had all expected that this would be a bright fruitful year where we will be capable of accomplishing several things we have jotted down on our list. Usually at the start of a new year, we all have that ‘new year, new me” vibe that helps us get motivated to do things we have never imagined and get rid of old toxic habits.

Today, as we know it, the world has gone chaotic due to the coronavirus pandemic and our dreams of a better reality were shut down completely. Every place where we could go to socialize, hang out with friends, buy or maybe even shop at has become closed for the safety of humanity worldwide.

This has left us all in quarantine at home in hopes of getting used to social distancing. Some people have been depressed and left in a dark rut because of all the sadness occurring worldwide. While others have been using this time as a chance to feel motivated and do the impossible.

Girls are left quite upset because they won’t be able to wear their coolest attire or even glam up a little bit with makeup. Some girls have been doing so at home regardless of them not going out. A new trend and challenge has gone viral worldwide where girls show themselves looking their natural self and then voila, they are all glammed up with their best outfits and make up that is on point.

This has allowed a new challenge to spark up, one that is taking place in the Middle East. Since flight attendants are currently at home and out of jobs because no one is flying anywhere or coming back from a country, they have gotten creative by starting the #dontrushchallenge on social media. The flight crew appear in the video playing with their kids, dogs, doing sports, or drawing and then transforming into their attractive EgyptAir uniform.

This challenge shows a female crew of flight attendants and pilots with them in the comfort of their home looking quite ordinary as can be. The trick is, that one second they look normal and the next they’re all dressed up in a their business work clothes. This truly is creative and has gone viral. It shows how women girl bosses are coping with the pandemic in a positive artistic manner.

The crews are sending us warm messages stating: “We can’t wait to have you back on board,” and “we will make it together.”  These have become the news slogans of EgyptAir.

The meeting went over the project’s implementation plan and the possible outputs of the factory.

Egyptian Railways Services and Maintenance Company (Ermas) will most probably run the new plant in cooperation with the private sector including a number of international companies, such as the Suez Canal Economic Zone, and Egypt’s Sovereign Fund.

According to El-Waziri, the factory is seen as part of a localizing initiative that aims at producing railway equipment locally, in order to meet the rising demand both domestically and in Africa and on the Arabian peninsula.

The factory will help boost the Egyptian economy, in addition to generating hard currency and providing job opportunities.

AstraZeneca announced today the effectiveness of its Covid-19 vaccine and it turned out to be around 90% effective with no serious side effects!

According to data from the late-stage trials in Britain and Brazil, the vaccine, which is developed by Oxford University, has shown 90% effectiveness after being administered as a a half dose followed by a full dose at least one month apart.

“This vaccine’s efficacy and safety confirm that it will be highly effective against COVID-19 and will have an immediate impact on this public health emergency,” Pascal Soriot, Astra’s chief executive, said in a statement.

British Prime minister Boris Johnson said it was “incredibly exciting news the Oxford vaccine has proved so effective in trials.”

The next step now is for the company to start preparing regulatory submission of the data to authorities across the world that have a framework in place for conditional or early approval.

It will also seek an emergency use listing from the World Health Organization (WHO) to speed up availability in countries with low income. In parallel, the full analysis of the interim results is being submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

With both Oxford’s and Pfizer’s vaccines, we can be hopeful that the new year will come bearing good news!
