Sawt Beirut International’s News Bulletin – Jan. 21, 2021

A brief of today’s news bulletin:

Extending lockdown to February 8: From January 7 until February 8, a month of which the country experienced a total lockdown. Are these measures sufficient to curb the pandemic and reduce the spread of Covid-19 infections and deaths, which reached an unprecedented record in the previous period?

The decision was inevitable and aims to catch a breath in terms of securing more beds in Covid-19 departments or in terms of securing respirators and ventilators. In the first week of February the first batch of Covid-19 vaccine will arrive in Lebanon.

  • What about the vaccine? When will it arrive and what category will be the priority?
  • Even in the midst of crises, the culture of extortion continues in the pharmaceutical sector.
