Health authorities have recorded today 37 new cases of coronavirus in north-western Syria, which is under the control of HTS and Turkish-backed factions in Aleppo and Idlib provinces.

According to Observatory statistics, the number of confirmed cases, since July 9 to date, rose to 533, including medical staff and doctors.

While 22 cases have been recovered in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of recovery cases to 171.

SOHR sources have documented the death of a man who was infected with coronavirus in Idlib countryside, bringing the death toll to six people in north-western Syria. The breakdown of fatalities is as follows: an elderly woman in Al-Dana town in Idlib countryside, another woman in Souran town in Aleppo countryside, a doctor in northern Aleppo countryside, an elderly man in al-Bab, a 50-year-old man in the city of Salqin in rural Idlib and and a man in Idlib countryside.

Observatory sources say that the quarantine departments do not apply necessary measures on suspected coronavirus cases, letting them self-quarantine in their homes in order to evade the expenses of the quarantine provided by the centre to suspected cases while waiting the results’ tests.
