CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt has allowed hotels to run at full capacity while observing strict coronavirus precautionary measures, an official at the Ministry of Tourism said on Sunday.
Assistant Minister Abdel Fattah al-Asi told Reuters the decision had already come into effect.
Egyptian hotels had been running at 70% of capacity since July due to COVID-19 regulations. Tourism accounts for up to 15% of Egypt’s national output, and is a key source of foreign currency.
