The Ministry of Public Health announced that 4 patients have passed away during the past 24 hours due to COVID-19 complications. The new deaths were confirmed in the daily COVID-19 report released by the ministry on April 2nd.
The report gave no details about the new fatalities. However, considering the number of critical cases has dropped from 7 to 3, the patients who passed away seem to have been among the severe cases.
Notably, 2 of these 4 deaths were reported by Rafik Hariri University Hospital yesterday, April 1st, and the hospital said they both had chronic illnesses and were indeed in critical condition.
After today’s update, the total number of deaths in Lebanon has risen to 16. According to the Ministry of Public Health, the active cases, as of Thursday, are 435.
