Tourism-dependent governorates report lowest COVID-19 numbers in Egypt: Zayed
Total of 14 hotels in five governorates receive health and safety certificates to reopen, says Tourism Ministry
Published in Daily News Egypt on 03 - 06 - 2020

Egypt's tourism-dependent governorates have reported the lowest number of coronavirus (COVID-19) patients in the country, according to Minister of Health Hala Zayed. These include the Matrouh, South Sinai, Red Sea, and New Valley governorates.
Speaking at the cabinet's weekly meeting on Wednesday, Zayed added that the Greater Cairo governorate has recorded a higher infection rate to others.
The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has announced that 14 hotels across five governorates, namely the Red Sea, Alexandria, Greater Cairo, Suez, and Aswan governorates, have received health and safety certification.
The certification was approved by the Ministries of Tourism and Antiquities, Health, and the Egyptian Hotels Association (EHA).
These hotels received the authorisation to reopen after meeting all health and safety controls set by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. The decision was approved by the Council of Ministers under international health safety standards. As part of government measures to curb the spread of the virus, all tourism and hotel facilities across Egypt were closed.
Abdel Fattah Al-Assi, Assistant Minister of Tourism and Antiquities for monitoring tourism facilities, explained that three out of the 14 hotels were in the Red Sea Governorate. A further three hotels were in Alexandria Governorate, and two hotels in Cairo Governorate, in addition to five hotels in Ain Sokhna, and one hotel in Aswan Governorate.
Al-Assi added that a total of 99 hotels have now received a health and safety certificate, and have received authorisation to reopen to customers.
He stated that the hotels that have been examined and which have yet to met health and safety requirements will work towards a re-inspection at a later date. The inspection committees will continue to inspect other hotels that have submitted requests to reopen.
