News circulated by social media pioneers about the arrival of a Chinese citizen to the reception department of the “Kafr El Dawar” General Hospital in the lake, suffering from a cold, and the flight of the reception staff from the hospital upon his arrival, caused great controversy on the websites.
After news that the doctors had escaped upon his admission, the hospital issued a statement, which was published on Facebook, about the incident, alleging that it was not true what had been circulated about the Chinese infection with the Corona virus.
The statement added that «the person who came to the hospital in the reception department, is a Chinese citizen working in one of the factories in Kafr El-Dawwar, and has resided in Egypt for more than four years.
He added that the Chinese “came to the hospital as a citizen to be examined at the reception department, knowing that this citizen was not in contact with the Chinese coming from abroad during the recent period, and there is no suspicion of infection.”
The hospital concluded its statement that “no disease specific to the virus has been recorded so far.”
Healthcare system failure
The medical situation, among Egyptians and medical staff in general, represents the spread of the virus by the black record of the system in the field of health care.
Where hospitals have turned into a kind of cemetery due to poor medical capabilities due to poor funding.
The system reduced funding to the health sector in exchange for increased funding for the army and the police.
The system allocates private hospitals to members of the army, police, and judiciary, while the rest of the Egyptians suffer from a semi-devastated health sector due to the regime’s failed policies.
Two days ago, Hala Zayed, the Minister of Health, claimed that no suspected or infected cases of Corona virus were detected in all governorates of the Republic, or the Egyptians returning from the Chinese city of Wuhan.
On Wednesday, the National Health Commission of China announced that the number of deaths due to coronavirus infection has risen to 1,144, and those infected to 44,653 people.
A statement issued by the committee stated that the number of deaths from the Corona virus during the past 24 hours reached 97 deaths.
According to the data of the World Health Organization, the number of deaths from the Corona virus exceeded the number of deaths due to acute respiratory syndrome, known as SARS, between 2002 and 2003.
And 774 people have died from the SARS epidemic, most of them in China, according to the World Health Organization, while the number of deaths from the Corona virus one thousand and 17 people were recorded within one month.
“Corona” is a family of viruses, but only 6 of them infect humans, and the new one is the seventh of the same killer family.
Symptoms of HIV infection include respiratory infections, fever, cough and difficulty breathing. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death, according to the World Health Organization.
The mysterious virus appeared on December 12, 2019, in the Chinese city of Wuhan (center); however, Beijing officially disclosed it in mid-January.
