The Ministry of Public Health issued on Friday its daily report on COVID-19, which states:
"To date (March 27, 2020) the number of laboratory-confirmed cases at the Hariri University Hospital and other accredited university hospital laboratories, in addition to private laboratories, has reached 391, marking an increase of 23 cases since yesterday.
A coronavirus patient in his eighties, suffering from chronic diseases, was pronounced dead at the Saint George University Hospital.
The Ministry stresses the need to comply with all the preventive measures, especially the full commitment to home isolation, which has become an individual and societal moral responsibility that must be shouldered by every citizen. Non-compliance will lead to legal prosecution."
