Four new cases of the new “Corona” virus, announced by the Rafic Hariri Governmental Hospital, yesterday evening, after recording six cases last Saturday. Thus, during the past two days, Lebanon has recorded only ten additional injuries, bringing the total number of cases, as of last night, 32 of which are in critical condition.
According to information from sources in the Ministry of Health, all the new cases that were registered yesterday, “are in contact with previous cases, and one of them belongs to a child who has been in contact with the daughter of one of the injured women who came from Britain,” raising the number of children among the injured to three. While noting that “the virus has a less severe impact on children,” she cautioned that “the danger lies with the infection of the adults who have had contact with it, who may be more vulnerable and vulnerable to the virus.”
The increasing number of people who have had contact with previous injuries raises more questions about the effectiveness of the measures taken in the field of domestic quarantine and the preventive measures that must be taken. While the Ministry of Health is working diligently to follow the paths of new injuries to “contain” cases and absorb “panic” that resulted from Health Minister Hamad Hassan’s statement last Saturday regarding the registration of “unknown” injuries, the behavior of the majority of Lebanese is still less than the level required The current stage, as many “persist” in going to gatherings and hiking places, while others do not adhere to the required home quarantine, which requires the local authorities to follow a more strict and firm mechanism.
Returning to the report of the “Hariri Hospital”, he issued a statement yesterday indicating that during the past 24 hours, he received 100 cases in the emergency department. The remainder adheres to the home quarantine, “noting that there are 19 cases until the moment in the quarantine area,” while the positive cases inside the hospital have reached 28, and a team from the Ministry of Health is ensuring the transfer of the remaining cases to the hospital. ”
