Some shops and businesses were permitted to reopen in Beirut on Monday, amid an easing of the coronavirus lockdown in Lebanon.
Footage from the Lebanese capital shows barbershops in operation, vehicles being cleaned on the road and people walking around wearing masks in Beirut's Hamra district.
«We follow the state instructions of sterilisation, (and using) masks, and gloves,» said barber Loai... Еще Saker. «We welcome each customer separately.»
«Shops should open because the country’s economy has started shrinking,» said Beirut resident Mohamad. «The economy must be opened, even gradually, until the economic wheel spins and people get what they need.»
Lebanon has 740 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 25 related deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
