Lebanon lockdown takes heavy toll on hospitality industry

(STL.News) A major outbreak of the coronavirus appears to have been averted but the pandemic devastated an already collapsing economy.  Many businesses did not survive.  Lebanon is slowly emerging from its lock-down.  Weeks of closures have caused further damage to an economy that was already in free-fall after months of political and financial turmoil.  And the hospitality sector is paying a heavy price, as at least 18,000 hotel employees have lost their jobs in recent months.
