Hawari Hospital said its medical staffers aren't capable, psychologically, to deal with the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, describing the rate of deaths as "scary".

The manager of the hospital, Fadi Fertas, said there are mass cases coming daily to the hospital and the intensive care unit is full, adding that the use of oxygen has become five or six times more than usual.

He said the rate of deaths among young and old people is "absolutely scary", calling on people to wear masks all the time outdoors, use sanitizers continuously and stay away from gatherings and crowded areas.

The epidemiological situation in Libya has aggravated lately with a heavy death toll, while the Libyan National Center for Disease Control announced detection of South African and British Covid-19 variants that usually spread faster than the novel Coronavirus.
