In response to the milk protest earlier this morning, the parliamentary Health Committee brainstormed solutions and announced that it has actually discussed the matter last Tuesday. They concluded that they should leave it up for the Armed Forces to either provide dollars to be able to import the necessary products or importing through the Armed Forces to begin with.
MP Makram Radian, who is a member of the Health Committee has added that the Armed Forces are also planning to start their own factory to provide milk and medicine for children.
The milk and medicine deficiency crisis has been there for some time. The parliament has sent its concerns to the Minister of Health and he promised he would find a long-term solution through inaugurating factories in Egypt.
WE SAID THIS: The protests are still ongoing.
