Egypt’s airports reopening tops talking heads’ agendas

The reopening of Egypt’s airports to regularly scheduled international commercial flights next month stole the spotlight on last night’s talk shows. Tourism and Antiquities Minister Khaled El Enany and Civil Aviation Minister Mohamed Manar both blanketed the airwaves to fill in the nation’s talking heads on the details of the planned reopening, which we have in full in this morning’s Speed Round, below.

Egypt’s covid-19 case and death tally remain “within expectations,” presidential health advisor Mohamed Awad Tag Eldin told Masaa DMC’s Eman El Hosary (watch, runtime: 5:24). Tag Eldin also discussed the planned manufacturing and distribution of remdesivir here in Egypt (which we note in What We’re Tracking Today, above) with El Hosary and Al Kahera Alaan’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 9:19).
