MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - Tourists who ignore official recommendations of the Russian foreign ministry and leave resort areas in riot-hit Egypt will not be eligible for medical expense coverage under health insurance policies, Irina Tyurina, the press secretary of the Russian Union of Travel Industry, told Russia 24 television channel on Friday.
“If a tourist, despite all the warnings, ventures for a trip to Cairo and is hurt in riots there, it means he or she willfully violates recommendations,” she said.
In all cases when harm is done to a tourist’s health, his or her insurance company conducts its own probe to find out the cause of the insured event. Tyurina reminded that all excursions to Cairo had been suspended and vacationers were supposed to stay only in the resort zones.
