Covid-19 arrives in Africa as Egypt confirms 1st case

Egypt's Health and Population Ministry confirmed on Friday that the first case of coronavirus was registered in the country, adding that the infected person is not a citizen of Egypt.

With the virus coming to the African country, Egypt became the first state on the continent to report the Covid-19 case. Commenting on the possible outbreak in Africa, WHO officials previously shared concerns over the "fragile" health systems in most African countries, adding that they would hardly cope with the infection.

Meanwhile, the official data showed that the coronavirus death toll rose to 1,384, while over 64,400 infected cases were recorded worldwide. At the same time, over 7,000 people successfully recovered from the disease.
