Following the deaths of two Hurghada hotel guests in August from a debated illness, British tourism giant Thomas Cook has announced its plans to implement new hygiene checks to all its hotels. In a Tuesday statement, the company described these measures as full, independent hygiene assessments to all hotels, where more than 0.25 percent of customers fell ill throughout the season. “The situation at that property is still under investigation, but the findings of our own audit have made us reappraise our processes, and our approach to hotel hygiene. While these extra measures ensure the safety of customers, the company continued, Thomas Cook already has existing measures aimed at certifying hygiene. “This means that we look at the hygiene measures that are already in place and see where improvements need to be made.
