CAIRO - 10 May 2020: Chairman and CEO of Banque du Caire Tarek Fayed stressed that the bank's Talaat Harb branch was immediately shut down one day after two of its employees were infected with coronavirus on Wednesday.
Medical tests were conducted on the other staffers of the branch to make sure they are free from the virus and a full sterilization process was carried out in the branch for three days, Fayed said in a statement late on Saturday.
The move comes in the framework of the bank’s keenness on the safety and health of all bank employees and customers.
Since the start of coronavirus outbreak in Egypt, the bank took a number of precautionary measures, including disinfecting all branches, providing gloves at the ATMs, exercising social distance among staffers and clients, activating E-Learning mechanism and organizing meetings through conference calls.
He urged bank clients to go to the nearest downtown branch until Talaat Harb branch is re-opened.
