Egypt will bar unvaccinated public service workers from
entering government buildings from the mid-next month.
A cabinet notice on Sunday said workers would have to be
vaccinated or take a weekly Covid test to be allowed into
government buildings from November 15.
The cabinet also allowed the opening up of bathrooms in
mosques that were closed in March last year as part of
measures to contain the spread of coronavirus from
Wednesday.
According to data from its health ministry, the government has
also allocated a billion Egyptian pounds to address the
pandemic, as the country has administered more than 30
million vaccine doses out of a population of over 100 million
people.
