In the meantime, 20 new cases were registered today: two in Jdeidet el Kaytah in Akkar, and 18 among Bengali workers living in two adjacent buildings in Ras el Nabeh in Beirut. One of the workers had taken the test at his own expense upon noticing symptoms. The Public Health Ministry then headed to the two buildings and conducted more than 100 PCR tests.
Open letter to Information Minister signed by "Skyes", "Adyan", "Maharat", "Alef", and "MAP"
- The Samir Kassir Eyes Center, ""Skeyes"", has published an open letter to Information Minister Manal Abdel Samad in response to a statement she gave to Voix du Liban (VDL) on May 16th.
- The letter, signed by organisations that advocate for freedom of speech in Lebanon, considered the minister's words about "[media] harming national security and infringing on dignities" a known ""tune" that masks "policies intending first and foremost to intimidate, subjugate, and oppress freedoms in various ways and methods."
