Military production factories have distributed over 1000 disinfecting gates across Egypt to help protect high school students while they're taking their exams.
We don't have the technology to take high school exams in individual pods, so it's understandable that people have been anxious over the prospect of letting a bunch of students into a single exam hall - even when measures against COVID-19 have already been advertised and implemented in many of these places. And that's perfectly fair. When it comes to COVID-19, you can never be too prepared.
The Egyptian military has recently produced 1,298 sanitisation gates to be placed at the entrances of high school exam halls across the country. So far, the gates have been distributed to 11 governorates nationwide, including Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Qaliubiya, Fayoum, Beni Suef and Marsa Matrouh.
The gate is designed so that only two people can pass through at a time. Should any issues arise, technicians from the Ministry of Military Production will be available on the premises to deal with them immediately. Although this won't singlehandedly prevent the Coronavirus from being an issue, it is one more piece in the larger system to help keep the pandemic in check.
