A former government official reveals the lies of the media arms of the coup regarding the stolen Corona vaccines

The health file in Egypt faces several crises, including corruption and neglect, and these crises are all linked to the spread of the Corona virus, which revealed the flaws and failure of the coup government.

Among the manifestations of this corruption is that citizens of Minya Governorate found thousands of doses of the Chinese Sinopharma vaccine, and reports stated that the number of these doses ranged between 35,000 to 65,000 packages dumped on both sides of the Abshaq village canal, affiliated to the Bani Mazar Center in the governorate.

The Ministry of Health in the coup government admitted the incident after exciting attempts to evade it, and that what was raised on social media was malicious rumors.

The director of the Egyptian Center for the Right to Medicine, Mahmoud Fouad, said in press statements that “the fact that thousands of doses of the Sinopharm vaccine were found next to a canal in Minya reflects a defect in the vaccine distribution system in Egypt at this time, pointing to the fact that the Ministry of Health provides vaccinations outside of Egypt.” The pre-registration system through the websites for vaccines and through mobile units, whether they are cars roaming the streets or providing vaccinations within various government agencies for workers and those who frequent them without prior registration, which opens the door for the recurrence of such phenomena.

In turn, Dr. Mustafa Gawish, the former Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health, considered that “the incident of finding thousands of doses of the Corona vaccine in one of the canals in Minya is an unfortunate incident shrouded in mystery, especially since the world is eager for a vaccine dose and there are millions of Egyptians waiting for their turn to obtain it.”

In his interview with Watan TV, Gawish denounced the failure of the Ministry of Health in the coup government to issue any statement to reveal the circumstances of the accident, and said sarcastically, “Now, after this incident, we expect the Minister of Health to issue a decision banning photography on the beaches of the canals, similar to the Minister of Education, who banned photography inside schools.”

Gawish added that, “After news was received that citizens had found a corona vaccine on the beach of a canal in Minya, the Health Directorate in Bani Mazar in Minya was quick to announce that the seized vaccine did not follow it and that it belonged to another governorate, and the next day Samsung media came out with different accounts, including that what happened A plot to destabilize Egyptian security and distort the image of the government, while another media outlet claimed that the incident was a terrorist Brotherhood plot.

Gawish explained that “the Public Prosecution issued a statement two days ago regarding the investigation into the incident, in which it stated that 3 defendants had been arrested, namely the responsible pharmacist, the driver of the truck that transports vaccines, and the storekeeper, and that there were inconsistencies in the statements of the three defendants, stressing that the report severely affects the credibility of the Sisi government in Efficiency and safety of the cold chain.

Gawish pointed out that “all vaccines or vaccinations need certain temperatures to be preserved, and every health directorate has cars equipped with special refrigerators to transport vaccines and vaccines, and these vaccines are received by the pharmacist and the driver as a warehouse custody under certain cooling conditions and transferred to refrigerators in the directorates’ warehouses.”

He noted that “the pharmacist mentioned in the investigations that he received the vaccines from Cairo and handed them over to the driver and went to perform some errands and was communicating with the driver by phone, adding that the driver informed him that he had been subjected to armed robbery and part of the vaccines had been stolen, and these statements contradicted the statements of the driver who stated that he sat on one of the Cafes to drink tea, and a quantity of vaccines were stolen in his absence, while the storekeeper in the directorate stated that the driver arrived late at night and that he received the vaccine cartons without taking them in stock, and he was not aware of the theft.”

He pointed out that “the Public Prosecution issued today a statement regarding the interrogation of 7 security men in the vaccine store in the Minya Directorate, which casts doubt on the story of the armed robbery. You buy Corona vaccines, but in fact they are free doses from several countries.”
