When you buy a medicine at a 24-hours-a-day pharmacy, it’s likely that it comes with a 24 hour expiration date.
And as of Thursday, that expires at midnight.
The reason is simple: pharmacy companies are not allowed to put out new products or services until after they have been tested.
Pharmacies, however, can still take new orders.
So why can’t they?
According to the country’s health ministry, the pharmacies that are allowed to sell new drugs have to wait two weeks to have the new drugs tested.
“The pharmacy must also notify the government in a clear, timely and comprehensive manner,” the ministry said in a statement.
According to the health ministry’s statement, the pharmacy cannot sell a new drug until it has been tested for quality and safety.
Pharmacies can also charge a fee to the government to cover the cost of testing new drugs.
This fee can be up to 50% of the price of a new medication, according to the statement.
The health ministry says that the health of the people in Egypt depends on their ability to access safe and effective medicines, and the pharmacies should act responsibly in the fight against the deadly Ebola outbreak.
The Egyptian government is also working to increase the number of pharmacies to 1,000 and to open additional locations.
