Sanitary and quarantine control on flights arriving from Egypt has been tightened in connection with cases of an unidentified disease in this country, Rospotrebnadzor’s press service reported.
Rospotrebnadzor has strengthened sanitary and quarantine control, including with the help of the Perimeter automated information system.
The symptoms of the disease, which has been identified in Qena province, are very similar to dengue fever. Its main vectors are mosquitoes. Therefore, tourists planning to relax in Egypt are advised to follow preventive measures: wear clothes that cover the skin as much as possible, use insect repellents and insecticides, cover the windows and doors in the rooms with mosquito nets.
If travelers feel unwell upon returning from Egypt, they should consult a doctor, informing them of the place of travel, the agency said.
