On March 30th, the Minister of Public Health Hamad Hassan tweeted an official list of government-owned hospitals that are now able to receive coronavirus cases.

The government has imposed a country-wide lockdown and curfew in hopes to reduce the number of new cases, which has been increasing since February, reaching 463 cases so far, including 12 deaths.

As the government has finally paid its dues to its country’s hospitals and allocated $600 million for medical supplies, public hospitals are now prepared and open for duty.

The list of 10 hospitals includes Rafik Hariri University Hospital (RHUH) in Jnah, which has been the go-to for most coronavirus cases.

  • Machghara
  • Baalbek
  • Hermel
  • Bouar
  • Tripoli
  • Bcharre
  • Halba
