His last periods witnessed the spread of rumors of his death in succession, and his family was always aggressively confronting these rumors until he passed away.
Mahmoud Yassin’s journey with illness began in 2014 when he was contracting for the series “Sahib Al Saada” to present it with Leader Adel Imam, but surprisingly, “Yassin” left work after rehearsals.
In those times the news became clear from within the series that the reason behind Mahmoud Yassin leaving work was his suffering with Alzheimer’s disease and his inability to memorize the text of the work.
Over the last years, Yassin was no longer able to work, and at the same time, his family was not certain about the nature of the disease he suffered from.
Last August, the artist, Shahira, wife of Mahmoud Yassin, went out to reveal the developments in her husband’s health, as she confirmed that his condition is somewhat stable.
Shahira confirmed that she prevented the visit from the house due to the Corona virus, for a period of 5 months, explaining that she refused to let Amr enter the house.
The artist, Nadia Lotfi, constantly asked the artist Mahmoud Yassin, as well as Farouk El-Fishawy.
