Hassan's words came during his visit to Baalbek Governmental Hospital today, where he met with its director, medical team nurses and staff members, commending their relentless efforts and sacrifices and wishing them a prosperous new year ahead. He also paid a special greeting to all employees and workers in the Corona departments in different hospitals and those who serve people with various means of diagnosing the epidemic.

He pointed out that "all support that is directed towards government hospitals is a duty, in wake of the accumulated deprivation and unsound, unfair health policies," adding that this support is made possible nowadays through the positive interaction that is witnessed in this sector.

Meanwhile, Hassan reminded citizens of the strict need to keep abiding by the safety precautions and measures against the Coronavirus, to protect themselves and their families and society as we await the vaccine's arrival. He also urged the private sector hospitals to join more in the battle against the pandemic by increasing the number of intensive care beds to treat the critical cases.
