Lebanon has officially announced 870 cases of Covid-19, including 26 deaths.
Last month the crisis-hit country started to slowly emerge from a weeks-long lockdown that has aggravated its worst economic crisis since 1975-1990 civil.
Restaurants and cafes have reopened at 30 per cent capacity, mosques have resumed prayers, and many people are back at work.
