Lebanon imposes lockdown for 25 days amid surge in coronavirus cases

Lebanon's number of coronavirus infections increased on Monday by 2,861 to 192,139, while death toll went up by 13 to 1,512.


Lebanon’s coronavirus (COVID-19) ministerial committee approved on Monday a 25-day lockdown set to start from Jan. 7 until Feb. 1 in an attempt to curb the COVID-19 infections, which has increased to an unprecedented level over the past few days, MTV Lebanon, a local TV channel, reported.

“The situation in the country has reached a very dangerous level amid the inability of hospitals to secure more beds for coronavirus patients which necessitates the implementation of a new lockdown,” Lebanese Caretaker Health Minister Hamad Hassan said in a press conference following the ministerial committee’s meeting.

All trade shops and restaurants will shut their doors down except for supermarkets and pharmacies, which will open until 5 p.m. local time in the afternoon.

The committee also approved a curfew to start from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. except doctors, nurses and journalists.
