BEIRUT: Thirty-five new COVID-19 cases were identified in Lebanon Thursday, according to the daily report issued by the Rafic Hariri University Hospital, raising the total number of cases to 368.
The report revealed that a total of 20 people have recovered since the start of the outbreak, while six others died and three remain in critical condition.
On Thursday, Lebanon’s cabinet approved a two-week extension of the lock down to help with the fight against the virus.
“We are still at a dangerous point in the outbreak,” said Information Minister Manal Abdel-Samad, adding that the extension is required given to COVID-19’s incubation period.
