Amman, Jan. 21 (Petra)– Lebanon has extended a hard lockdown by two weeks amid record-breaking numbers of COVID-related deaths and an unabated surge in the number of new cases that have stretched the country’s healthcare system to its limits.

Meanwhile, a top health official has announced plans for a roll-out of vaccinations in the crisis-hit country that he said would see some three million of the country’s inhabitants – roughly half the population – receive the jab by the end of the year.

Under the strict measures, most businesses and factories must close and even supermarkets and restaurants can only operate via home delivery.
