The Minister of Higher Education and the acting Egyptian Minister of Health said, “It is expected within 3 weeks that the “Omicron” mutant will be prevalent in the world, and Egypt is also witnessing a rise in the number of mutated infections.”
The Minister of Higher Education and Acting Minister of Health, Khaled Abdel Ghaffar, added, during the “Al-Hekaya” program, which is broadcast on the “mbc Egypt” channel, that infections with “Omicron” are predominant in Egypt, which is normal because over time, “Delta” will be replaced. “Omicron”, and the studies published so far say that “Omicron” injuries are less severe.
He added that the whole world is witnessing an increase in the number of Corona injuries, and Egypt is within the countries that are witnessing an increase, noting that “this matter is not the measure by which the epidemiological situation is measured, and that the “Omicron” mutant spreads 4 or 5 times more than other mutant ones.”
Abdel Ghaffar revealed that: “The most common symptoms for “Omicron” are cold, headache, pain when swallowing, and dryness in the throat, and there is a similarity between them and influenza, and the least common symptoms are coughing, some chest pains and high temperatures, and what we want to differentiate is The relationship between corona and influenza, because there is a great similarity between their symptoms.”
And he added: “The same protocol used in the treatment of previous corona mutant is used in the treatment of “Omicron”, especially as it treats symptoms only, and what we see in Egypt at times is that there is randomness in treatment, and we cannot say this matter has a scientific basis, but rest and eating foods And immunostimulating therapies are the basis of treatment.”
He pointed out that “scientific research has proven that vaccination helps overcome symptoms and not infection, and those who are not vaccinated are more likely to deteriorate their condition or need to be hospitalized, and Egypt has provided nearly 129 million doses of all types, and today we reached the first dose of 36 million and the second 24 One million, half a million, and we have much more.”
The minister said: “If the whole world suffers from death rates and injuries, and research says that the vaccine protects you from the deterioration of your condition, then seek to obtain the required doses, and even the stimulant dose that was opened for those who have passed 6 months, all of which reduces the severity of the disease and avoids deaths and entry Hospitals, and what made the death rates drop by 50% from what they were at the beginning of the pandemic, is vaccination and its provision, in addition to the use of approved masks, and there is a difference between scientifically approved masks and unapproved masks that do not significantly protect against infection.
