Egypt’s Ministry of Transportation announced on Monday that it has decided to add 28 trains to the current fleet of trains during rush hours.

According to the statement of the ministry, 

Minister of Transportation Kamel El-Wazir ordered the use of additional trains to reduce the pressure on trains in Upper Egypt and Nile Delta due to the partial curfew implemented nationwide.

Egypt imposed a two-week curfew starting Wednesday from 6 am to 7 pm to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

Egypt has so far recorded 656 coronavirus cases, including 41 deaths.
