Last night’s talk shows for Sunday, 10 May 2020

Another quiet Ramadan night on the airwaves, with only a phone call between Al Kahera Alaan’s Lamees Al Hadidi and Information Minister Osama Heikal worth noting.

On reopening the economy, Heikal said the government is hoping this happens soon despite being careful about specifying a date (watch, runtime: 15:54). Measures designed to prevent the spread of the disease — including a nighttime curfew and the closure of some public places — will remain in effect until the end of Ramadan. We have more in this morning’s What We’re Tracking Today section, above.

Gov’t preparing airports to receive domestic holidaymakers- Heikal: Domestic airlines have been flying with very low utilization rates, but this could change once hotels are reopened soon for domestic tourism, Heikal said. This is important as it could prevent thousands from losing their jobs, he adds. The government has since the start of the outbreak been working to balance health and safety with economic revival, he notes.
