Tourists ride camels in front of the Great Pyramids of Giza, on the outskirt of Cairo, Egypt
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.
