After placing Egypt on Britain’s red list, the military are stubbornly greedy for tourism and aviation revenues

It seems that the coup government is not interested in Britain’s classification of Egypt next to 6 countries in the red list to prevent travel. Starting from Tuesday, June 8, Britain makes its decision to include Egypt in the red travel list and six other countries to the red list, whose arrivals are subject to mandatory quarantine for ten days in certain hotels at their own expense, which amounts to 1,750 pounds per person, due to the outbreak of the virus. Corona virus in it.

On the other hand, social media witnessed widespread ridicule after the statements of the Minister of Health of the coup government, Hala Zayed, that she was coordinating to present the Egyptian experience in managing the Corona crisis to Britain, expressing her surprise at London’s decision to put Egypt on the red list for travel.

Observers warned of the bad effects of the decision on Egyptians in Britain or those coming to tourism to Egypt. Excluding the costs of testing before traveling to Egypt and testing costs in Egypt before traveling to Britain. Noting that the biggest problem is that banning travel to the Red List countries without a compelling reason is convinced by the British authorities. And that the solution is to travel from Egypt to a European country and stay there for more than 10 days before traveling to Britain!

Tourism agencies have published preparations made by Egypt and Arab countries that have already begun to ease the closure procedures, with the beginning of the new tourist season; Hoping to make up for part of the losses caused by Corona.

Similar to Hala Zayed, Dr. Mohamed El-Nadi, a member of the Corona Control Committee, appeared on a program with Lamis El-Hadidi saying that “Egypt is one of the best countries in the world in managing the Covid-19 crisis!” The “club”, a member of the scientific committee to combat the Corona virus, denied what was being raised in some foreign newspapers, which talked about an Egyptian mutant in Thailand, who was initially called the “Thai mutant”, claiming that there is no mutant.

Decision functions

Dr. Osama Rushdi, residing in London and a former member of the Human Rights Council, said that the escalation of British policies towards Egypt and the closure of the borders impose “a direct freeze of flights and the imposition of compulsory quarantine paid on those coming from it after the success of the vaccination program there for fear of the Indian boom.”

Dr. Mostafa Gawish, a former undersecretary at the Ministry of Health in Egypt, and a professor of immunological diseases residing in Britain, commented that “# The Egyptian mutant C.36.3 is on the list of the World Health Organization and is spread in 23 countries, including France, Germany and America, but Egypt does not have the genetic sequence checked for # Corona Virus”.

He pointed out that the Minister of Health of the coup government is trying to “meet with the British ambassador in Cairo to put pressure politically to change the decision.” And about his astonishment at the randomness of the moves regarding what is unfolding, he indicated that “she will mention the Egyptian aid shipment to support Corona in Britain, and ask for the favor to be returned.”

He stressed that Dr. El-Nadi’s statements are incorrect, and that Egypt is on the red list of Britain, and that it is caused by the spread of Corona in Egypt, and not the percentage of the Corona vaccine; Because Bahrain is also on the same list and they have a good vaccination, and the Egyptian mutant is real and is spread in 23 countries, and Egypt does not have a genetic sequence examination.”


red list And the British Ministry of Transport included – last Thursday, June 3, 2021 AD – 7 countries on the red list for the travel ban, including Egypt and Bahrain, and the decision entered into force since the dawn of Tuesday, June 8, 2021 AD, according to the British newspaper “The Guardian”. Those coming from the red list countries to the United Kingdom must quarantine in a hotel for 11 nights, at a cost of 1,750 pounds per person (2468 US dollars).

Egypt’s placement on the red list means that entry into a hotel quarantine will be limited to holders of British citizenship or those who have residency in Britain or Ireland, while others are prohibited from entering at all, according to a statement from the British government’s website regarding the red list.

According to the “Worldometers” website, which specializes in monitoring Corona statistics, the death toll from Corona in the world until last Thursday evening reached 3 million and 711 thousand, while the injuries amounted to more than 172 million and 666 thousand, and the number of people recovered reached 155 million and 401 thousand.

misleading campaign

The coup government adopts the “buzz” about the manufacture of the Chinese vaccine in Egypt, “Sinovac”, and that its quality is equivalent to the original vaccine, which China did not adopt and questioned its strength compared to other vaccines, while the head of the coup government announced that the number of Egyptians who were vaccinated about 2.5 million citizens only from The origin of 100 million means that the ratio is only 2.5%.

Although Egypt uses the English vaccine “AstraZeneca” among the available vaccines, it did not help the Egyptians to enter Britain, just as it did not help Egypt to hold a tourism conference that tries to restore tourism activity to areas targeted by British tourists as a preferred destination such as Sharm El Sheikh. Tourism in Sharm El-Sheikh suffered a painful blow, after a Russian plane crashed over Sinai in 2015 with a bomb placed on board. The accident caused a rift in the confidence of a number of countries in the insurance procedures at Egyptian airports.
