Coronavirus | “Salvation Government” announces one-week shutdown, as health sector is near collapse and cases increase
The “Salvation Government” in Idlib has issued, today, a circular to ministries and public agencies, demanding the closure of universities, institutes, public and private schools, and markets of popular bazaars and motorcycles, for a week, starting from Saturday morning until next Friday, exempting the departments that must remain in their work to manage the affairs of people.
On the other hand, medical sources have informed of the Syrian Observatory that the health sector in north-west Syria is on the brink of collapse due to the high number of coronavirus cases, and the inability to receive any critical condition as hospitals are full of patients.
The number of daily confirmed cases has reached a critical threshold, as health authorities are recording hundreds of cases per day, while dozens of cases have been recorded in the past few days.
The number of deaths has risen to over 54 cases among adults and the elderly, including a child who died in Idlib hospitals, while the total number rose to 7,500, of whom about 2,900 were recovered.
