Lebanon to go into 4-day closure to prevent virus spread

BEIRUT, May 12 (Reuters) - Lebanon’s government agreed on a “full closure” of the country for four days, the presidency said as the cabinet met on Tuesday to try to ward off a second wave of coronavirus infections.

The closure starts on Wednesday night.

Authorities have warned of a resurgence in recent days as the number of cases jumped to its highest point in more than a month after the government eased some lockdown restrictions. (Reporting by Ellen Francis; Editing by Alison Williams)
