BEIRUT, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon registered on Sunday the highest daily increase in COVID-19 infections of 1,006, raising the total number to 29,303, while death toll went up by 11 to 297, the Health Ministry reported.

Caretaker Health Minister Hamad Hassan urged authorities to impose complete lockdown in the country for two weeks in an attempt to reduce the number of infections, especially as the country's health sector has limited capabilities.

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

The country has received several donations from different countries for the fight against COVID-19 including China which offered on Sept. 9 around 10,000 N95 masks, 100,000 medical masks, 100,000 gloves and 6,000 PCR rapid tests.
