NNA – In an issued statement by Greenpeace on Saturday, it criticized the government's decision to open swimming pools on the pretext that chlorine does not transmit infection; while on the other hand, the government has prevented beaches from opening due to pollution from sewage flowing into the sea which may increase the possibility of spreading corona virus.

In this connection, Middle East and North Africa Greenpeace Director, Zeina El-Hajj, explained that "sewage discharges in the sea are the basis of the problem, which must be addressed quickly…The polluted water causes many other problems, and more serious diseases than corona which may remain active for longer periods, like salmonella."
