Sawt Beirut International’s News Bulletin – Jan. 19, 2021

A brief of today’s news bulletin:

  • A severe outage in oxygen in hospitals

How many times has it been said that there is outages in oxygen as an expression of suffocation or distress, but this time this term is used in its real and not symbolic sense. There is an actual shortage in oxygen, and who does not believe this let him try and dare to ask about an oxygen bottle. If it was found it shall be purchased from the black market and in fresh dollars.

As for the executive authority, it has nothing to do but to deny all these fears, but on the ground the fears are valid, since when does the citizen believe the state?! Didn’t the state tell citizens that there will not be outages in medicine?! Actually, there is shortage in a variety of medicine! Didn’t the state tell the citizen that there will not be fuel outages?! How many times did the citizen stood in the humiliation queues in front of a gas station for a gallon of diesel or a gallon of gasoline?! Didn’t the state tell him that there will not be outages in medical equipment?! Where is that equipment?!

  • A horrific drop recorded in the number of airport passengers.
  • Smuggling of foodstuffs from Lebanon to Syria is occurring before the country’s eyes.
