Boasting fantastic all year round sunshine, over the years Egypt has become a hugely popular holiday destination for millions of holidaymakers. Featuring luxury hotels surrounded by stunning scenery it may seem like a dream destination, unfortunately this is not always the case.
All-inclusive resorts across Egypt have seen many cases of illnesses reported. These illnesses not only impact your health but leave holidaymakers out of pocket due to high medical expenses.
Although food safety guidelines exist, a large number of holidaymakers travelling to Egypt will still fall ill, with unsanitary conditions often causing severe stomach illnesses.
Food poisoning is the most common form of illness claimed for by visitors to Egypt. Many hotels in Egypt leave food uncovered and open to pests such as insects or birds. The food served at many resorts has also been found to be undercooked or re-heated leading to serious infections.
Food Poisoning from Salmonella is one of Egypt’s most common complaints. This can leave you with diarrhoea, vomiting and fever and must be treated as soon as possible.
Although all holiday makers visiting Egypt are advised to drink only bottled water, poorly maintained swimming pools can also lead to serious stomach illness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium.
It is your tour operators’ responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel.
