DAMASCUS, March 24 (Xinhua) — The Syrian Health Ministry announced here on Wednesday it will provide 75 tons of oxygen to Lebanon for COVID-19 patients.
The announcement came during a joint press conference held by Syrian Health Minister Hasan al-Ghabbash and his Lebanese counterpart Hamad Hasan in Syrian capital Damascus.
The oxygen will be delivered in three batches starting Wednesday, and it won’t affect Syria’s stock of oxygen, according to Hasan.
The Lebanese minister said that his ministry turned to Syria for help due to a lack of oxygen in the Lebanese hospitals. Enditem
