Restrictive measures in the country will be in effect until the summer, but some easing is already being introduced.
The Egyptian government at a meeting on Wednesday, May 19, extended the restrictive measures imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic until the end of May. This was reported by the Al Arabiya TV channel.
So, until June, it is forbidden to gather in large groups of people in the country, for example, for meetings, conferences, celebrations, cultural events. Weddings and birthdays are only allowed in open areas.
Shops, cafes, restaurants, theaters, and other cultural and entertainment facilities are allowed until 21:00. The authorities also allowed the opening of park areas and beaches, subject to compliance with the necessary measures.
In addition, until the end of May, students of international schools will be able to return to their desks, but since June, the educational process will continue online.
It should be noted that since the beginning of the pandemic in Egypt, about 250 thousand people have been infected, of which more than 183 thousand have recovered and 14,441 have died of complications of the disease.
As reported, on May 6, a lockdown was introduced in Egypt. The authorities closed the shopping center, shops, and restaurants for two weeks.
