Libya closes schools over coronavirus

BENGHAZI (Reuters) - Libyan schools in areas controlled by both the Tripoli government and a rival administration in Benghazi will close for two weeks, both have announced.

Libya has not yet confirmed any cases of the coronavirus but the head of its disease control center said on Thursday that the country lacked adequate isolation facilities for an outbreak.
