Crackdown on unlicensed private lessons + amendments to organ donation bill on the airwaves

Education and healthcare were the two main themes on the airwaves last night with the imminent start of the 2021-2022 academic year. Kafr El Sheikh governor Gamal Nour El Din ordered seven unlicensed centers giving private lessons closed in a large-scale crackdown. Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 7:35) and Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa (watch, runtime: 3:03) showed Nour El Din during a raid on one of the centers.

The Health Ministry is encouraging university students to get walk-in vaccinations at the newly established government walk-in centers ahead of the start of the academic year, Health Minister Hala Zayed told Al Hayah Al Youm’s Lobna Assal (watch, runtime: 6:01). Zayed confirmed that unvaccinated students will not be allowed on campuses this academic year, which starts on 9 October and runs through 3 February 2022. (Second term starts 19 February 2022.)

Draft amendments to a 2010 organ donation law were also a topic of discussion, with Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa wondering whether the amendments would be on the legislative agenda this session. Moussa spoke to House Health Committee chair Ashraf Hatem, who was scant on details but said that the law is among the committee’s priorities (watch, runtime: 6:17). El Hadidi also took note of the proposed changes (watch, runtime: 9:01).
