Countries/airlines which will assist travelers if they get Covid-19

It would be nice to have a thread summarizing countries and airlines which will offer assistance to travelers if they get Covid-19 while traveling.

For example, the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities just came out with a document outlining their plan to resume travel to tourists, and "The Ministry of Health and Population will cover the cost of medication and treatment of tourists testing positive with COVID-19 until their full recovery" This includes covering the cost of your hotel stay while in quarantine egyptologyforum.org/MOA/ResumptionTourism.pdf

Lufthansa now offers a "return flight guarantee" for European flights. and a "carefree package" insurance where Quarantine costs or medical return transport is included, as well as additional hotel and transport costs stemming from quarantining. Cancellation costs for unused hotel stays and excursions are also reimbursed.

Any other countries/airlines with this kind of assistance? This info may sway my plans for future travel.

I should say, it was a great idea. Unfortunately, the virus won't be stopped soon, so travellers are in danger. I hope other countries will also assist trvalers like Egypt. As for Lufthansa, I'm sure, many people will find it useful.
