The head of the Coronavirus Control Committee in Gharyan city Nasreddin Al-Fazzani has said that the epidemiological situation in the city is getting out of hands. He warned that with the severe shortage of capabilities and logistical resources the situation appears set to worsen quickly.

"The city is short of oxygen supplies, and the new stocks do not arrive on schedule in addition, the city has only one isolation centre while the other centre affiliated with the military medicine apparatus has closed its doors," Al-Fazzani said in a press statement on Monday.

Al-Fazzani urged the government to take swift action and to get the oxygen plant back working as soon as possible, as it could cover the city's needs and the entire region of Nafusa Mountain.
