BEIRUT Lebanese Health Minister Hamad Hassan confirmed Sunday that his country have taken all precautionary procedures to prevent coronavirus infections.
During an a visit to Rafiq Hariri International Airport early this morning, the Minister said that the measures taken in the Far Eastern countries and the lack of direct flight to Beirut helped prevented any infection with the virus in Lebanon.
He reassured that the situation is under control and there is no need for panic, pointing out that there is no information of any Lebanese people in China infected with the Coronavirus.
The medical team at the airport is ready to receive passengers arriving from infected countries, who are required to fill out forms to collect accurate information about them.
He said that Rafiq Al-Hariri University Hospital is fully equipped and ready to deal with any case in Lebanon, as the patient will be isolated and provided with the necessary treatment.
