“This is the first time we see Hurghada without tourists,” said Russian expats who filmed a video about the life of the resort in quarantine. According to them, the situation at the resort, despite the strict measures taken, remains calm and benevolent, so some Russian citizens decided to wait out the hard times in Hurghada. “There were two export flights — on March 27 and 29. Not all have taken off, there are still people who want to fly out, they are still being added to the lists. There are those who made the decision to stay at the resort right at the airport, ”the blog authors say.
The measures taken at the resort are as follows — from 19.00 a curfew has been introduced, when it is forbidden to appear on the streets. The curfew will last until at least April 14th. Most of the shops are open, only large shopping centers and all cafes are closed, although the latter have introduced delivery. Pharmacies and grocery stores are open, while the Egyptian authorities have promptly «caught» speculators raising prices for masks and disinfection. Almost all hotels are closed, for example, the Sinbad hotel «fenced off with boards» — note the authors of the blog.
The beaches are also closed. Taking into account the fact that the weather in Hurghada is excellent — + 32 ° С, and the water in the sea warmed up to + 24 ° С — at the resort they set up security guards even on «wild» beaches in order to «drive people out of there.»
At the same time, the «moral climate» at the resort also remains calm. “The Egyptians are still welcoming, offering help in case there is any problem with money. There are no problems or conflicts, «the blog authors note. Also, the resort is clearly preparing for the fact that the season will begin after all — the streets, water supply, etc. are being repaired. «Everything will work out, you just have to wait a little,» — noted in the video.
