Lebanon Receives A 14.5-Million-USD Donation For Fight Against COVID-19

BEIRUT, Lebanon on Sunday, received at least 22 billion Lebanese pounds (about 14.5 million U.S. dollars) donated by citizens, expatriates and officials to combat COVID-19, MTV reported.

The donation will be delivered through Bank Audi, to the Rafic Hariri hospital and other public hospitals involved in the fight against COVID-19, in addition to the Lebanese Red Cross and vulnerable people, who are in dire need to secure daily income to make a living, it said.

People made phone calls, sent emails and messages to “Sar El Wakt,” a political programme, broadcast on MTV on a weekly basis, to make their donations.

Lebanon has been fighting COVID-19, or novel coronavirus, for around a month now, amid a shortage of medical supplies such as ventilators, masks and other equipment.

On Sunday, Lebanon’s total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases rose to 248, of whom four have died.
