And there are different nationalities like Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, and Italians.”

Rahma Zein from Cairo, who chose to stay back in Dahab, says, “No one is talking about the coronavirus here. In Cairo, you are constantly bombarded with the news,” which can be harmful to your mental health.
“It takes a psychological toll, and I believe that when your psychology is down, your immunity is down. Being here and not being engrossed in the conversation of coronavirus really helps you just be and brings a certain level of normality.”
“On a normal day, I wake up, make breakfast, go for a free dive, hang out on the beach, take a hike, eat then sleep,” she adds.
“In between sessions, I make phone calls and do my work.”
