The report added that 22912 PCR tests were conducted during the past 24 hours, adding that the number of cases of recovery from the coronavirus rose to 156084.
According to the report, 61 new coronavirus-related death cases were registered, which raised toll to 2020.
To face this sharp increase in the coronavirus cases, the Lebanese authorities approved a total lockdown that has started on Thursday, January 14, and lasts for 11 days.
According to Al-Manar TV news bulletin, the sixth day of the total lockdown witnessed an almost complete commitment across most of the Lebanese provinces amid strict measures taken by the army and security forces.
However, WHO envoy to Lebanon, Dr. Iman Shanqiti, told Al-Manar TV that, to be fruitful, the coronavirus-related lockdown in Lebanon must remain for four weeks.
Meanwhile, Saint George Hospital issued on Tuesday a statement in which it confirmed the coronavirus-infected health minister, Dr. Hamad Hasan, is doing well, adding he would fully recover in few days.
