Egypt’s Minister of State for Information, Osama Heikal, speaking at a press conference after today's cabinet meeting, announced that Thursday, March 12, 2020, would be a paid day off public holiday for employees in Egypt's public and private sectors, due to the unprecedented floods expected on Thursday and Friday, March 12 and 13, 2020.
Minister Heikal went on to state that "The country's stock exchange and all banks will also be closed, and schools and universities will be shut down nationwide on Thursday", thus amending the list of 2020 bank holidays in Egypt, as announced by Egypt's Central Bank, earlier this year (2020-01-13).
