Hospitals in Lebanon have reached capacity as COVID-19 cases surge. The government has declared a state of emergency and imposed a 24-hour curfew from January 14-25. The military will enforce the lockdown.
One Lebanese paramedic compared the daily caseload to the August 4th Beirut explosion. The country is registering thousands of new cases every single day.
Nuna of Triumphant Mercy Lebanon currently has COVID-19, as do many others on the staff. She says holiday celebrations around the country caused the spike. “They opened the market for Christmas, they opened a gathering of families for Christmas. And then even for New Year, everything was open. And even until the sixth of January, actually, because that was the Armenian and the Orthodox Christmas. So then we waited all this time, and people were just mingling together. And of course, they tried to take some precautions, but it was never enough.”
