Beirut records 220% increase in COVID-19 cases after explosion | New Europe

“Since the day of the explosion one month ago we’ve seen over a 220% increase in the number of COVID cases in Lebanon, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down,” said Matias Meier, the Country Director for the International Rescue Committee in Lebanon.

He added that almost daily, 500-600 new cases are being recorded, while the big number of clusters makes it more difficult to contain the spread of the virus.
