Nurses work at the neonatal intensive care unit, at Family Medical Center, a private hospital facing financial difficulties, in Majdalaiya village, north Lebanon, Thursday, July 16, 2020. Just as Lebanon faces a surge in coronavirus cases, hospitals are cracking under the country's financial crisis. They are struggling to pay staff, keep equipment running or even stay open amid shortages in key supplies like anesthesia and sutures. The health sector has long been one of the best in the Middle East, with its private hospitals drawing patients from around the region. But with dollars in short supply and the state unable to pay insurance bills, hospitals are having to turn away patients and close wards to cut costs. Public facilities, on the front line of the coronavirus fight, are too underfunded and understaffed to fill the gap. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
