I am told the health minister didn’t host the gathering, wore a mask and didn’t stay long. But the message not to hold large gatherings stands. It’s dangerous. I wish the health minister a full recovery.

@LizSly Please add that he found a hospital bed while the Lebanese people can’t find any and are dying at home.
Thank you.
