Tunisia: Resort town of Hammamet gears up for guests as country set to reopen borders

Hammamet, a resort city 60 kilometres (37 miles) south of capital Tunis, was gearing up for the return of foreign travellers on Saturday as the country prepares to reopen its borders. People could be seen enjoying the sun and swimming in the pool or the Mediterranean sea near the Sentido Le Sultan hotel. «The first thing which happened was that an agreement was made with the Ministry of Health, which is a health protocol,» the hotel manager confirmed adding that body temperature checks will be made on all tourists arriving. Other measures include ensuring that hotels run at limited capacity, with frequent cleaning and sterilisation, while social distancing measures will also be encouraged for guests. Earlier this week, the World Tourism Organization (WTO) promoted Tunisia as a safe tourist destination, explaining that the country had few confirmed cases of COVID-19 and had taken the necessary steps to combat the disease.
