President Abdel Fattah El Sisi gave his directives on Sunday 5/4/2020 to conduct medical tests on the medical staff of the National Cancer Institute, workers and patients who went to the institute over the past two weeks.
The move comes after at least 17 doctors and nurses at the institute tested positive for the virus.
Presidential Spokesperson Bassam Radi said Sisi's directives come as part of the State's efforts to curb the outbreak of the pandemic.
Sisi also instructed listing all people who came in contact with the reported cases. He also urged providing necessary medical care to the new infections.
The safety of citizens comes first, the president said.
