CAIRO — In an attempt to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus, Giza governorate imposed April 7 a lockdown on al-Moatamdia village, which is affiliated with the governorate’s Kerdasa municipal division, for 14 days and cordoned it off. The decision came after several cases of the virus that causes COVID-19 were detected in the village.
In this context, the governorate, commissioned by the government, took several measures to facilitate the lives of the village residents and delivered infant formula and medicines to those suffering from chronic diseases. It also provided ambulances to transport those critically ill to hospitals. Village residents have volunteered to provide services for the elderly and those suffering from chronic disease.
