"We can contain simple and medium cases, and there are places to hospitalise virus patients," he said, adding, "Medicines and protective equipment available."
In televised statements on Monday evening, Tag El-Din said that Egypt will have reached its peak of infections if the daily infection rate decreases over a period of one week to ten days.
The advisor noted that the social acceptance of home isolation and care techniques for coronavirus patients have proven successful. He added that many cases of the virus were contained, as the majority of Egypt's coronavirus cases were either asymptomatic or patients with non-acute symptoms.
Tag El-Din stressed the importance of committing to the precautionary and protective measures to curb the spread of the infection. He further noted that the National Research Centre (NRC) is conducting clinical trials on some suggested vaccines for the virus.
Meanwhile, Osman Shaalan, Dean of Zagazig University, announced that a new hospital affiliated to the University for isolating and treating paediatric coronavirus cases will be inaugurated next Sunday.
Shaalan explained in televised statements that the hospital contains 47 intensive care beds and 200 other beds as a first stage, with 70 additional intensive care beds to be added in the second phase.
