The Health Ministry dismissed Wednesday 4/3/2020 reports that Egypt had delivered a coronavirus vaccine to China.
In a press statement, Health Ministry’s spokesman Khaled Megahed denied that Health Minister Hala Zayed had delivered the vaccine to Beijing during her visit.
Zayed’s visit came as part of President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s eagerness to show solidarity with China and its people at such critical time, Megahed said, adding that the minister conveyed Sisi's condolences to the Chinese people over the deaths of the novel virus.
The visit was also meant to share expertise and data with the Chinese health authorities, the spokesman said, adding Beijing had shared with Cairo the updated documents for tackling the virus.
The ministry urged the news outlets and users of social media to seek accuracy.
