The Egyptian Olympic Committee announced, on Saturday, the suspension of all tournaments held in closed halls, until further notice, due to the high number of new infections with the Corona virus emerging in Egypt.
According to the committee, holding any gatherings of sports teams or camps will be suspended except in the event that all precautionary measures are taken and the “closed capsule” system is used for the players residing in the camp or gathering.
The “closed capsule” system includes the Handball World Cup, which will be held in Egypt next January, while it does not apply to the local handball, basketball and volleyball tournaments.
