In an issued statement on Sunday, the Ministry of Public Health alerted the citizens towards the strict need to adhere to domestic quarantine for those who were required to do so by the medical teams of the Ministry, especially those coming from abroad and those who were in contact with infected cases, even if they do not show symptoms of disease, because they may be potential carriers of the virus and may cause infection to others.
The statement warned against any negligence in complying with the preventive measures and the required home quarantine, which would restore the widespread phase of the disease.
In this regard, the Ministry emphasized “the pivotal role of municipalities and local authorities in monitoring and being strict with those who are obliged to quarantine themselves, so as to ensure that there is no recklessness”, calling on citizens to “cooperate with the municipalities and local authorities, by quickly reporting violations so that the required action can be taken and the community remains well-protected.”
The Ministry also reminded all citizens to stay away from crowded gatherings, and to wear masks when going out and mixing with others.
In conclusion, the Ministry praised the awareness demonstrated by the Lebanese in implementing the instructions pertaining to the Corona prevention, which rendered Lebanon among the few countries that succeeded in containing the epidemic. However, it urged citizens to continue to abide by the adopted public safety measures, and to be patient so as not to lose what has been achieved so far, so we can cross this phase successfully.
