Egypt detected 579 new coronavirus cases on Friday to report total infections since the outbreak last year to 185,334.

The health ministry reported 45 deaths, bringing the death toll to 10,916.

533 patients have been discharged from hospitals in the past 24 hours to bring recoveries nationwide up to 143,143.

Around 1,141 citizens have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine since Egypt began its vaccination rollout for priority groups on Thursday, the health ministry announced on Friday.

The health ministry said 1,141 citizens from eligible groups, which include the elderly and people with chronic diseases, have been administered the first shot of the vaccine on the first day of the campaign.

Egypt currently administers doses of the Chinese Sinopharm and the British-Swedish Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines, both of which were granted emergency use authorisation by authorities earlier this year.
