He says the migration of health care workers is particularly worrisome. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has been in Lebanon over the past two days, meeting with senior officials, visiting health facilities and talking to medical professionals. He told reporters on Friday that Lebanon needs emergency and development support.
