BEIRUT, July 30 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's first mobile clinic offering free COVID-19 testing and other basic medical services was on Friday launched in capital Beirut by its municipality and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat).

The clinic will provide free PCR testing and support in contact tracing while referring individuals with other medical conditions to service providers.

"It will help us better cope with COVID-19 cases whether from new strains or from community transmission," Beirut Mayor Jamal Itani was quoted as saying by a statement of the UN-Habitat.

Lebanon has seen a sudden increase in COVID-19 cases by 40 percent this week because of the arrival of a large number of expats and the absence of proper precautionary measures.

According to the Health Ministry, the total number of infections in Lebanon is 560,396 while the death toll stands at 7,903. Enditem
