The health emergency will be lifted on April 29th if the coronavirus outbreak is proved to have been contained. If not, the Lebanese government would likely extend the health emergency period.
With 3 recovered coronavirus COVID-19 patients in Lebanon and 3 cases deaths, the number of people infected in Lebanese hospitals has dropped to 103, a positive sign amid a worldwide shortage in respiratory devices.
Rafik Hariri University Hospital issued a statement in which it stated:
“In the context of preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in line with the precautionary health measures set by the state to limit mobility, citizens who have performed laboratory coronavirus examinations PCR at the Rafik Hariri University Hospital can contact the hospital every day between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to see the results of their tests on the following number 01832020.”
The hospital’s statement added, “Please be aware that starting Thursday, March 19th, 2020, a mobile application for the purpose of coronavirus (COVID-19) examination will be launched under the name “RHUH”. The application can be downloaded on cell phones.”
The Ministry of Public Health has yet to officially announce the recovery of the two patients, in accordance with what LBCI reported.
