Meanwhile, Egypt’s health ministry warned citizens against people claiming to work for the ministry and tricking them into disclosing personal information.

A spokesperson for the Cabinet’s media information centre commented on reports of fraudulent phone calls that collect people’s personal information and claim to have them registered for the coronavirus vaccine, saying that the Ministry of Health has been notified.

The Health Ministry warned citizens that such calls aim to exploit or blackmail people by using their personal data.

It encouraged citizens to report the phone numbers of people who claim to be from its offices in order to take all legal measures against them.
