Minister Hassan spoke, saying, “There is no doubt that we are living in a decisive phase in epidemiological behavior, and we must use all methods that prevent the dangerous outbreak that we have reached, and that securing this technology on the airport with such accuracy and high sensitivity certainly saves us conducting many, not even thousands, of tests that we use by scanning We conduct in the closed areas within the red zone, and at the same time we conduct monitoring of the examinations from some countries, so that in the first stage we balance between PCR tests and diagnosis by trained dogs, and later and gradually these dogs can be used in front of some institutions or civil, military or security gatherings Within the Lebanese territory, that is, it can be used at the doors of universities, schools, institutions and public administrations as well as many countries of the world such as France and the airport in the Emirates, and we consider that with this technology we can strengthen our preventive strategy to contain what can be contained from the societal outbreak that is in the goal and desired goal with all Measures taken by the Ministry of Health in Lebanon ”.

He added: “We approached the Italian scene with one or two items, but we strive hard and try not to fall into what we fear, which is to record the huge number of injuries that our public and private health system does not accommodate on the one hand, and moral tolerance, God forbid, to the number of deaths.”

Hassan pointed out that, “in agreement with the Middle East Airlines, the amount of fifty dollars will no longer be deducted from the price of the PCR examination for those who do not re-perform this examination at the airport, but this amount is deducted from arrivals from unreliable countries.”

In other words, with a short time, and thus we can identify and isolate the injured person before he is integrated into society.
