Egypt bans school staff who aren’t jabbed or tested

The Egyptian education ministry has barred teachers and other staff from entering schools and universities unless they have been either vaccinated or fully tested for Covid.

Education Minister Tariq Shawqi said unvaccinated staff must pay for two PCR tests a week – at the prohibitive rate of almost $100 (£73) each.

Official figures show that 40% of Egyptian teachers have yet to be vaccinated against coronavirus.

The academic year is due to start in two weeks.
