This service will be available daily from 7:30 am until 5:00 pm for people who need or would like to test for the virus.

Noting that the number of cases in Lebanon has reached 494 on Thursday the second of April, with a total of 16 deaths. On the other side of things, the number of people who are fully recovered in Lebanon is now 43.

Hospitals’ administrations and health workers, along with the Ministry of Health, and even Lebanese citizens with pertinent expertise, have been working hard to control the outbreak.

Among these citizens, engineers are also working to create new helpful devices, like disinfection robotsrespiratory devices from local materials, robotized carts with cameras to serve patients, and high-quality artificial respirators. A women’s workshop has been even creating protective hazmats.
