Six Egyptian judges and prosecutors have contracted the coronavirus, Judges Club spokesman Reda El-Siyad said on Friday, adding that five of those are currently in hospital, one is receiving treatment at home and all are in stable condition.
El-Siyad did not give further details about those involved.
Egyptian appeal, primary and specialised courts, as well as the Court of Cassation, will return to work after the three-day Eid Al-Fitr holiday which begins on 23 May, the country's Supreme Judicial Council announced on Tuesday.
The move comes two weeks after the resumption of inheritance hearings at all courts and the partial resumption of hearings at criminal, appeal and family courts.
Court proceedings had been suspended since March in light of the coronavirus.
Egypt has recorded 10,829 coronavirus cases so far, including 571 fatalities.
