Unvaccinated citizens will not be allowed to enter any government facility, Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli said.

It is important to follow the implementation of this decision, he said during the Council of Ministers held on Wednesday.

The state has provided all types of internationally approved coronavirus vaccines, he said, noting that Egypt currently has a large number of vaccines against Covid-19.

The meeting, meanwhile, discussed the current situation of COVID-19 at global, regional and national levels.

Acting Higher Education and Health Minister Khaled Abdel Ghaffar meanwhile said the highly infectious variant of the Omicron coronavirus is responsible for the vast majority of coronavirus cases in Egypt.

Egypt is seeing an increase in Omicron cases, he continued.

Also, he pointed to a report published by the World Health Organization, during which he made a comparison between Omicron and the rest of the variants.

The Minister also referred to the cooperation agreement signed between Egyptian Holding Co for Biological Products and Vaccines (Vacsera) and Sinovac to establish a fully automated logistics refrigeration complex within the Vacsera factory complex in the 6th of October city to store vaccines and raw materials.

The project should be finalized within six months, he noted.
