The Lebanese Ministry of Public Health announced on Monday the registration of 1,471 new coronavirus infections and 51 new deaths in Lebanon within the past 24 hours, thus raising the cumulative number of confirmed cases in the country to-date to 441,014.
On a side note, the Director General of Beirut Governmental Hospital, Dr. Firas Abiad, warned via “Twitter” that “Covid-19 cases are soaring up in several countries, not only in Lebanon. This has resulted from several reasons, including new, more infectious virus variants, early easing of lockdown measures and slow vaccination process. What is happening in Brazil is worthwhile, as the healthcare system there is almost collapsing. ”
