Egypt reported 321 new Covid-19 infections on Friday, the health ministry said, the lowest figure since 3 May.

In total, 94 078 Covid-19 cases have been reported in Egypt, of which 39 638 have recovered and 4 188 have died, including 31 on Friday, the ministry said in a statement late on Friday.

Egypt reopened resorts to foreign tourists on 1 July after tourism came to a halt in March under measures to curb the coronavirus outbreak.

But Egypt has not yet made it to a “safe list” of countries for resumption of non-essential travel to the European Union.

Tourism accounts for 5% of Egypt’s economic output, according to the government. The figure rises to as much as 15% if jobs indirectly related to the sector are included, analysts say.
