clinics

Hotels in Egypt have implemented government safety regulations which include having an on-site clinic with resident doctors, regular temperature checks of guests, and a quarantine area, as they try to attract domestic tourists, hotel officials said.

Egypt suspended international flights in March and shut down restaurants, hotels, and cafes in order to combat the pandemic, which has cost its tourist, sector an estimated $1 billion per month.

Tourism accounts for about 12%-15% of gross domestic product.

Although airports remain closed to all but domestic and repatriation flights, 99 hotels have been allowed to reopen at a quarter of their usual capacity if they met strict health and safety protocols.
