after a whole year of a pandemic around this planet, lets see how our beloved Egypt have been during this year , as we can see , the country have been witnessing a several modes and waves of infection , so lets start by this list to include more details in an easier way :
- The country had a very wise policy , they closed the border for inbound passengers , and they have used all the aviation resources to be used to export the Egyptian products , this represented a huge benefit for the country’s current account in the 2020 where all balances of payments even of highly trading countries were suffering
- The country was open for tourism since the second half of 2020, but under the conditions of having a valid negative PCR test upon arrival , although the tourism have not been that source of revenue generation in the whole past decade , but according to the changes within the country , it is seen that it would have represented a high portion of the GDP this year if no global lockdown happened.
- The lockdown have represented a good opportunity for the local government to increase the pacing of the economic development by having better opportunities to increase the construction in the field of infrastructure without having a significant traffic jams and this offered the country a better opportunity to solve the problem after the end of the lockdown.
- The awareness of the people is as expected and as usual, needed some more restrictions, although the government tried its best to be providing the basics to solve this problem , penalizing people , avoiding gatherings , and providing sanitizations for the people at reasonable prices was the remarked great issues by the Egyptian government.
