Egypt’s Minister of Health and Population، Ahmed Emad Eddin Radi، announced that the announcement of the final results of the tests for a family in Shubra، north of the capital Cairo، will be announced within three days.
Several people are being held at Imbaba and Abbassiya specialized fever hospitals after contracting a virus that doctors are still unable to diagnose، medical sources said amid a media blackout on the part of the Health Ministry.
An informed source said a secret meeting was held at the ministry on Monday to discuss the issue. Further meetings are ongoing. The number of patients held at the hospitals does not exceed 5 cases، the source added.
A medical source inside Imbaba hospital said some of the infected have been isolated because until the virus is identified، doctors in Egypt are unable to prescribe a suitable treatment.
