BEIRUT: The United Nations Development Programme and the Disaster Risk Management Unit at the Presidency of the Council of Ministers in partnership with the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities, the Ministry of Public Health, the Lebanese Red Cross, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization, launched a three-pillar national campaign on Wednesday. The campaign aims to raise awareness among the Lebanese on the importance of closely following precautionary measures to avoid the rise of a second wave of the Novel Coronavirus.

The three pillars highlighted by the campaign include: physical distancing with a minimum of 1.5 meters between individuals; precautionary measures, such as the importance of wearing the medical mask and covering one’s mouth when coughing or sneezing; and hygiene practices, such as washing one’s hands for a minimum of 20 seconds and sanitizing purchased products before using them.
