Egyptian Tourism Minister Khaled al-Anani said that the country is trying to create a destination with hygienic conditions to attract tourists around the world.

Like many other countries, since March, Egypt has stopped all flights and closed archaeological sites, museums and hotels to control the spread of Covid-19.

This North African country has begun to relax its blockade measures and is gradually moving towards welcoming the return of tourists in the summer. As planned, in the coming days, the Egyptian Government will announce the conditions for visitors to enter.

Expected resorts on the Red Sea coast, including South Sinai, and Mediterranean beaches in the western coastal city of Alexandria will be the first to be reopened.

Top attractions, including the Pyramids of Giza or Karnak Temple will also be reopened but controlled. Typically, the tomb of King Tutankhamun will only allow up to 10 people to visit at the same time. Meanwhile, the attractions in Cairo will be opened in a later stage.

Prior to the Covid-19 crisis, Egypt had set its sights on tourism as a "pillar" of the country's economy and expected to welcome 15 million visitors in 2020, an increase of 2 million from the year. 2019. Egypt's tourism industry has begun to show signs of recovery after years of political turmoil since the uprising of the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

However, all plans were broken when international flights were canceled and tourist destinations closed. Currently the hotels are only allowed to operate at 50% of capacity. Accommodations must provide respirators and masks to customers, while other public areas are regularly disinfected.

Although no statistics on the damage of the Egyptian tourism industry this year, but officials of this country estimates that figure could reach 5 billion USD. Egypt's central bank said it would provide credits worth $ 3 billion, with interest rates reduced to 5%, to support this "smokeless industry".

To date, Egypt has recorded about 35,000 cases of Covid-19, including more than 1,200 deaths.
