Lebanon: Fury as health minister says reports of medicine shortages are 'rumours'

Lebanon’s minister of health, Hamad Hassan, has sparked outrage after stating that reports of medicine shortages in the country are rumours, and that the media and public are exaggerating the economic crisis in the country.

On Wednesday, one Twitter user asked Hassan to address the medicine shortages in Lebanon. Hassan responded: “Do not listen to the rumours from some media outlets. I don’t blame them. They’re clever at directing and sharing things, it’s their job,” he said in the tweet.

Online, many have criticised the minister for downplaying the severity of the situation in the country, and for suggesting that medicine shortages are not a widespread problem.
