No single story takes the leads on Egypt’s talk shows

It was a quiet night on the airwaves, with no single story taking the lead.

Goldman Sachs’ projections that developed countries’ GDP will shrink 35% during the second quarter of the year was on Ramy Radwan’s radar. The Masaa DMC host recapped the highlights of the report, which we note in What We’re Tracking today, above (watch, runtime: 2:13).

Sham El Nessim gatherings: Cabinet spokesman Nader Saad phoned in to Yahduth fi Misr to tell Sherif Amer that outdoor gatherings for Sham El Nessim will not be tolerated — authorities will act as if the country is under a full lockdown during the holiday, he said (watch, runtime: 3:07).

Covid-19 clinical trials in Egypt: Radwan had a chat with Ain Shams University President Mahmoud El Meteini about studies and clinical trials currently underway in Egypt to better understand covid-19 and search for potential treatments (watch, runtime: 18:16). Radwan and Amer also took note of the Health Ministry’s daily case tally (watch, runtime: 1:51 and runtime: 1:58).
