Egypt began its Covid-19 immunization program Sunday, becoming one of the first countries in Africa to vaccinate its citizens, with a doctor and a nurse receiving the Chinese-made Sinopharm jab.
Egypt, the Arab world's most populous country with over 100 million people, received its first batch of the vaccine in December.
The inoculation will be available to all health workers for free, Health Minister Hala Zayed said Sunday.
