Egypt’s talk shows: GERD talks resume today, covid-19 second wave is coming
The nation’s airwaves didn’t have much to give us as a welcome-back offering last night, with only Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa serving up any content.
Negotiations with Ethiopia and Sudan on GERD continue today as the three countries are working on a report to submit to South Africa this Friday with their proposals and points of contention, Irrigation Ministry spokesman Mohamed El Sebai told Moussa (watch, runtime: 5:53). We recapped the latest updates on the talks yesterday.
We’ve just about contained the first wave of covid-19 infections and could even start seeing days with zero new cases or deaths, but a second wave is all but certain come wintertime, Hossam Hosny, the head of the scientific committee of the state’s anti-covid task force told Moussa. Hosny also discussed Egypt’s plans to secure a vaccine, pointing to China and the UK as the most promising sources at the moment, while Russia’s Sputnik V is still in the clinical trial stage (watch, runtime: 20:05).
