Crew of the Chinese ship YANGZE 7 quarantined at Damietta Port

DAP decided to quarantine the crew of the Chinese ship YANGZE7 coming from Hong Kong  carrying 45000 tons of steel, as part of national efforts to prevent Corona Virus from entering Egypt.
DPA and relevant authorities took security measures on the ship and dealt with its 21 crew members of Chinese and other south eastern nationalities, while wearing protective suits.

DPA Chairman ordered prompt handling of the case. Necessary quarantine measures were taken at highest levels and  all crew members were tested and proved negative to Corona Virus. The vessel then was allowed to proceed with cargo discharging.

As a precautionary measure, the port authorities request a copy of the medical reports of the crew of any ship coming from or passing through China, before it enters the port, including temperature checks.
