Emergenza economica e sociale

In Libano scarseggiano medicinali e carburante

Lebanon is mired in a devastating economic and financial crisis, the worst in its modern history. A result of this has been crippling power cuts and severe shortages in gasoline and diesel that have been blamed on smuggling, hoarding and the cash-strapped government’s inability to secure deliveries of oil products.

Il Libano è nel mezzo di una devastante crisi economica e finanziaria, la peggiore della sua storia moderna. Conseguenze di ciò sono le continue interruzioni di corrente e le gravi carenze di benzina e diesel, attribuite al contrabbando, all’accaparramento e all’incapacità del governo a corto di liquidità di garantire le consegne di prodotti petroliferi.

Nello stesso tempo, il Libano è alle prese con la terribile mancanza di forniture mediche, con problemi soprattutto per il trattamento delle persone malate di cancro, che devono seguire i precisi tempi delle chemioterapie. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar)
