Sisi: Egypt Will Handle Quarantine Cost for Egyptians Stranded Abroad

President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has announced that Egypt will be taking care of the quarantine expenses for Egyptian expats wishing to return home but can’t afford the stay on their own.

El Sisi signed a declaration that the national fund Tahya Misr will take the responsibility of paying the expenses of quarantine for Egyptians wishing to return home, this follows Egypt’s Civil Aviation Ministry decision of quarantining Egyptian expats for two weeks in a hotel upon their arrival to Egypt.

Egyptian Cabinet spokesman Nader Saad said on Tuesday that citizens abroad won’t be allowed to fly to Egypt unless they sign a quarantine commitment letter, meaning that it is compulsory.

The decision which is indeed needed faced refusal from several travelers because of the high expenses, especially that they will have to stay at a hotel.

A number of Egyptians who arrived from Kuwait and Britain refused to be quarantined at their own expenses, which led to Sisi’s fair decision of handling the cost.

We hope that with such a fair amendment to the rule, Egyptians stranded abroad can fly back home safely and abide to the newest mandatory rule.

New 69 coronavirus cases have been announced yesterday by the ministry, which is why we need to follow stricter rules to contain the virus while still maintaining the safety of Egyptian nationals stranded abroad.

To all the travelers, stay patient and to everyone here, stay safe and stay home.

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!

Yet another promising news for a Covid-19 vaccine has been announced! Moderna said today that its vaccine has shown 94.5% effectiveness in preventing the virus, according to an analysis of its clinical trial.

The biotech company made the announcement earlier today, giving us a dash of hope amidst this coronavirus scare.

The news follows the announcement made by Pfizer and BioNTech, who said their vaccine was more than 90% effective.

The results come from interim analyses of intensive clinical studies. The clinical trials of Moderna saw the participation of 30,000 volunteers. Half got two doses of the vaccine 28 days apart, half got two shots of a placebo on the same schedule.

“This positive interim analysis from our Phase 3 study has given us the first clinical validation that our vaccine can prevent COVID-19 disease, including severe disease,” said Stéphane Bancel, chief executive officer of Moderna, in a statement.

Both companies used the same technology in making the vaccines, which is a tech based on a molecule known as mRNA, or messenger RNA. That molecule contains genetic instructions for making proteins inside cells.

We hope that by the end of this year, we can rest assured that a vaccine can soon end this pandemic.
