The Committee of Corona Virus Prevention Measures and Procedures in the Saraya, chaired by the Secretary-General of the Supreme Defense Council and Chairman of the National Committee for Disaster Management Major General Mahmoud Al-Asmar, was attended by the Advisor to the President of the Republic for Health Affairs, former deputy Walid Khoury, Adviser to the Prime Minister for Health Affairs Petra Khoury, and representatives of the ministries of health and interior Municipalities, social affairs, tourism and work, and representatives of the Red Cross, the World Health Organization and the nurses’ union, and a number of government and private university hospitals.

The representative of the Ministry of Health reviewed the developments in the spread of the virus, the high number of daily infections among Lebanese and residents on Lebanese soil, especially foreign workers, the high levels of incoming from abroad, the state of inaction that we witnessed in recent days by citizens, and the lack of commitment to preventive measures.
