At least 137 people were killed and 5,000 wounded in a massive explosion that shook Beirut on Tuesday, according to Lebanon’s health minister.
Hundreds have been reported missing, raising fears that the death toll will rise, the health minister said Wednesday.
More than 300,000 people have been displaced from their homes. Authorities declared Beirut a “disaster city” and imposed a two-week state of emergency.
It’s still unclear what exactly caused the explosion. Lebanon’s prime minister said an investigation would focus on an estimated 2,750 metric tons of the explosive ammonium nitrate stored at a warehouse.
“Coronavirus cases may rise in Lebanon over the next 10 days, says health minister”
