Recently, cases of detection of a disease similar to Dengue fever in the Egyptian region of Qena, which is a popular excursion destination, have become more frequent. And the zone for detecting cases is gradually expanding.
As a result, the press service of Rospotrebnadzor on the official website of the department informed the Russians that in the second half of July, control over all tourists from Russia who spent their holidays in Egypt will be strengthened. Methods of control are still being specified.
The disease is spread by insects, therefore Rospotrebnadzor strongly recommends that tourists in Egypt take precautions – when going outside, it is imperative to treat open areas of the skin with special means, in a room where there is no protective mesh on window and door openings, tightly close windows and doors. If you feel that the temperature begins to rise for no reason and there are signs of chills, you should urgently consult a doctor.
