This hot spell comes in conjunction with the Muslim’s holy fasting month of Ramadan, during which Muslims do not eat or drink anything from dawn to sunset.
Egyptian employees enjoyed five days off from 29 April to 3 May as per a Cabinet decision due to public national holidays, which helped many people to stay away from direct sun rays while fasting.
