Crisis and Covid in Lebanon
Coronavirus, economic crisis, and an unresolved explosion: The situation in Lebanon is tense and a new lockdown is only making things worse for people already suffering trauma and economic devastation.The currency crash has pushed more than half the population into poverty. It has also depleted foreign reserves, raising concerns that Lebanon’s central bank will not be able to finance subsidies of some basic commodities, including fuel in the coming weeks. The crisis is posing the gravest threat to Lebanon’s stability since the 1975-90 civil war.
