Lebanese caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab warned on Monday that Lebanon has reached a stage of “extreme danger” amid the huge surge in Covid-19 cases.
Addressing a meeting for the coronavirus inter-ministerial committee, Diab said “All indicators about the spread of coronavirus clearly show that we have entered a stage of extreme danger or, at least, we are on the threshold of it,”
He slammed citizens’ failure to comply with anti-coronavirus measures as recklessness, stressing that “it is the government’s duty to protect people from their selves.”
“Either we fix the situation with a full and strict lockdown, or we face a Lebanese model that is more dangerous than the Italian one,” he warned in remarks carried by National News Agency.
