The Head of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) Bader Al-Din Al-Najjar, confirmed that the isolation centers in Tripoli are presently suffering from extreme pressure, due to an excess of cases infected with the Coronavirus within them.

Al-Najjar said that the country is presently at the start of the ‘pinnacle’ of the pandemic and the cost would be a large loss of lives, if everyone failed to take an extremely serious stand, as he put it.

He told a press conference on Sunday, that he believed that working toward educating citizens on the pandemic, would be the most effective solution to solving the existing crisis, adding that the relevant laboratories must be given the necessary support and equipment to diagnose those infected with the virus, in order to remedy the present threatening epidemiological situation.
