Egypt has decided to bar the entry of Qatari nationals, including those who have valid residency in Egypt, amid fears over the coronavirus, the cabinet said on Wednesday, APA reports citing Reuters.

The measure will take effect from March 6 until further notice. Qatar had on Sunday imposed a temporary restriction on entry to its territory on visitors from Egypt via intermediate points because of the virus’s spread.
