A medical store in Cairo is set to open in 24 hours, in what officials say is the first of its kind in the country.
The store, which has been set up by a group of medical experts, will be located in the heart of the capital, in the suburb of El-Azhar.
It will also be open 24/7, but no visitors will be allowed in.
“Medical clinics are closed for the last 24 hours for reasons of national security,” said Ahmed El-Mabkhouri, the head of the Health and Social Welfare Ministry.
“We are working on an emergency operation that will allow people to enter the building during the 24 hours.
We have no other information about the operation yet.”
A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health said that the centre will be equipped with all necessary equipment, including a 24-hour emergency operation room.
The announcement comes a day after the Egyptian military overthrew Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically elected president, following mass protests against his rule.
Morsi, who is also an outspoken critic of the Muslim Brotherhood, was ousted after mass protests in February.
He was replaced by Mohammed Morsi, a close ally of the ousted president.
Egypt has seen a dramatic increase in anti-government demonstrations since the military took power, and many Egyptians have blamed the military for failing to address widespread social and economic problems.
The government has denied the accusations.
