COVID-19 is spreading within the sort of an enormous epidemic for the globe. This epidemic infects a lot of individuals in Egypt. The World Health Organization states that COVID-19 could be spread from one person to another at a very fast speed through contact and respiratory spray. On these days, Egypt and all countries worldwide should rise to an effective step to investigate this disease and eliminate the effects of this epidemic. In this paper displayed, the real database of COVID-19 for Egypt has been analysed from February 15, 2020, to June 15, 2020, and predicted with the number of patients that will be infected with COVID-19, and estimated the epidemic final size. Several regression analysis models have been applied for data analysis of COVID-19 of Egypt. In this study, we've been applied seven regression analysis-based models that are exponential polynomial, quadratic, third-degree, fourth-degree, fifth-degree, sixth-degree, and logit growth respectively for the COVID-19 dataset. Thus, the exponential, fourth-degree, fifth-degree, and sixth-degree polynomial regression models are excellent models specially fourth-degree model that will help the government preparing their procedures for one month. In addition, we have applied the well-known logit growth regression model and we obtained the following epidemiological insights: Firstly, the epidemic peak could possibly reach at 22-June 2020 and final time of epidemic at 8-September 2020. Secondly, the final total size for cases 1.6676E+05 cases. The action from government of interevent over a relatively long interval is necessary to minimize the final epidemic size.
