Hariri Appeals to the Lebanese to Respect the Lockdown
Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri has appealed to all citizens, “to the fathers, mothers and young men and women all over Lebanon, to stay at home and deal with home confinement as the only safety line" against coronavirus.
He said on Twitter: “The coronavirus epidemic is a treacherous enemy... I appeal to you to remain home and deal with home confinement as the only safety line."
He continued: “Responsibility is shared between the country's official authorities concerned with determining the scientific steps to confront the epidemic and the citizens who are required to protect themselves and stop endangering the safety of others.”
Hariri concluded: “The occasion calls on us to unite all efforts and support the medical teams responsible for the safety of people, primarily the medical and nursing teams at the Rafik Hariri Hospital and the Lebanese Red Cross teams deployed all over the Lebanese territory.”
