"Today, in view of the fast spread of this epidemic, the global and local inability to contain it so far, and the increased number of cases, the Council of Ministers is holding this extraordinary session to adopt a series of exceptional and temporary measures which will be announced at the end of the session," he added.

Aoun called on the Lebanese to commit to awareness and comply with the required medical instructions that are being broadcasted by official medical and media sides.

He also urged citizens to demonstrate "the most noble and highest manifestation of human commitment to each other, with the required compliance, in view of ensuring the highest levels of protection, keeping away from mingling and staying home."

"It is the moment of national solidarity for all of us. Together, we must concretize this solidarity, in both of its humanitarian and societal dimensions, with innovative and new ways," Aoun asserted.

"We are all one in the face of any danger that threatens the safety and life of any Lebanese, in any Lebanese region," the President corroborated.
