Egypt says it has launched vaccinations against coronavirus

first_imgCAIRO (AP) — Egypt has launched a vaccination campaign against the coronavirus. The first shots of Chinese state-owned pharmaceutical giant Sinopharm’s vaccine were given to healthcare workers in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia. Health Minister Hala Zayed says they would prioritize vaccinating healthcare workers in 40 hospitals, designated to isolate and treat COVID-19 patients across the country. Egypt, the Arab world’s most populous country, has reported more than 161,140 confirmed cases, including 8,902 deaths.
