BEIRUT, July 10 (Xinhua) — Lebanon’s number of COVID-19 infections increased on Friday by 71 cases to 2,082 while the death toll remained 36, the National News Agency reported.
Lebanese Health Minister Hamad Hassan is following up on equipping public hospitals with a fund provided by the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development and the Islamic Development Bank.
The minister said a day earlier that the increase in the number of COVID-19 infections on a daily basis is caused by a lack of proper measures adopted for arrivals to Lebanon from foreign countries.
Lebanon has been fighting against COVID-19 since Feb. 21.
The country has received several donations from different countries for the fight against COVID-19 including China which offered 17,500 masks, 1,500 protective gears, 1,320 goggles and 1,000 shoes covers to Lebanese public hospitals last month. Enditem
