BEIRUT, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's number of COVID-19 cases increased on Sunday by 1,010 to 53,568 while the death toll went up by four to 459, the Health Ministry reported.

The Interior Ministry increased the number of villages that must adopt lockdown measures from 111 to 169 amid the fast spread of the virus across Lebanon.

Lebanon has been fighting against COVID-19 since Feb. 21.

On Sept. 9, China offered Lebanon around 10,000 N95 masks, 100,000 medical masks, 100,000 gloves and 6,000 PCR rapid testing kits to help it fight the pandemic.
