In 15 days | Significant decrease in number of coronavirus cases in NE Syria, and health authorities record 165 new infected cases
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored a significant decrease in the number of coronavirus cases in NE Syria. Health authorities recorded yesterday five new confirmed cases, bringing the total number of infections to 20,965, of which 8,649 in Aleppo countryside and 12,317 in Idlib.
On January 15, health authorities in north-western Syria recorded 20,800 infected cases.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had monitored a significant decrease in the number of daily infected cases recorded by health authorities in north-western Syria since late 2020, as only dozens of infections were recorded, after hundreds of positive cases were recorded daily in earlier weeks and months.
On the other hand, civilians in the cities and towns of north-western Syria region are not adhering to precautionary measures, while markets and public gathering places are still operating, particularly the institutions of the “Salvation Government” and ” Interim Government”, universities and schools, in light of a severe shortage of medical equipment. Meanwhile, organizations’ medical service is confined to the field clinics and mobile medical centres.
