Prof. Kenneth Christie spoke to CFAX 1070’s Adam Stirling about the massive explosion that happened in Beirut, Lebanon on August 4.

Here is an excerpt:

“There’s a lot of poverty in Lebanon at the moment, unemployment is about 25 percent in Lebanon; there’s nearly a third of the population below the poverty line. Major hospitals were hit in this explosion and I think they had to close about three of the hospitals so they’re overwhelmed. They’re not only overwhelmed of course with the explosion and the casualties, they are overwhelmed with COVID-19.”

 Christie was interviewed on CFAX 1070.
