“Vaccines would save the country from the coming tsunami,” says Abiad

The Minister of Public Health Firas Abiad, valued “the great assistance provided by Kuwait to the Lebanese people and its institutions, and thanked the Kuwaiti government and people for their permanent support for Lebanon, in the most tough circumstances.”

Abiad stressed in a statement to “Kuwaiti Al-Anba” that “Lebanon is in dire need for the Arab and international support,” stressing that “its importance lies in the fact that we must maintain the best relations with the world and Arab neighbors and brothers, and the path has become clear to all and we have only to follow it.”

During his tour to Sibline Governmental Hospital in the Chouf district, Abiad valued the grant that Kuwaitis presented to Sibline Hospital last year.

In response to a question, Abiad affirmed that “the vaccine is the lifebelt that will save the country in the coming tsunami,” stressing the need “to continue vaccination campaigns, because more than 50% of the Lebanese people have become working on daily basis, that’s why imposing lockdown will leave catastrophic impact on the economy. “People must abide to the preventive measures and receive the vaccine, without closing the country, and this is what most countries in the world do.”
