WHO seeking $76 million for Lebanon after Beirut blast, concerned about coronavirus

Cairo

The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday it had appealed for $76 million in aid for Lebanon after last week’s massive explosion in Beirut destroyed or damaged hospitals, clinics and medical supplies. Lebanon was already struggling with a financial crisis and a rise in the number of new coronavirus cases before the August 4 explosion in the capital’s port area that left at least 171 dead and injured some 6,000.
