Coronavirus in NW Syria | Over 800 infections detected since the beginning of 2021
Syrian Observatory sources have confirmed that health authorities in north-western Syria documented new six coronavirus cases yesterday, which brings the total number of infections to 21,028. In the meantime, 89 other cases have recovered, bringing the total number of recovery cases to 16,912. Also, the number of deaths has reached 402, as two new cases died of the virus.
Accordingly, the number of infections documented in the past 35 days, since the beginning of 2021, has reached 824. It is worth noting that the same number had been documented in just two days during the peak of coronavirus outbreak.
It is also worth noting that the total number of coronavirus cases documented by the health authorities until the end of December 2020, was 20,204, of whom 12,718 cases were recovered, while hundreds others died and buried under strict precautionary measures.
On the other hand, the reasons behind the noticeable decline in the number of coronavirus cases in the past few days remained unknown, in light of not adopting precautionary measures, while markets, schools and universities are still functioning.
According to the health authorities’ statistics, more than 4,000 infections were documented in north-western Syria in November 2020.
