Nearly 42,000 new coronavirus cases in regime-held areas | About 1,000 people die of the virus, while regime authorities continue misinformation
As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in regime-held areas is noticeably escalating, reliable medical sources in regime-controlled areas have informed the Syrian Observatory that nearly 42,000 new Covid-19 cases have been detected in the past few days, while 984 other cases died of the virus in the same period.
Meanwhile, regime authorities continue misinformation and keeping the real number of deaths and infection cases with coronavirus secret. Moreover, large number of deaths are claimed to be caused by pneumonia, despite the broad outbreak of the virus throughout Syria.
According to SOHR latest statistics, based on reports obtained from reliable medical sources on the ground in regime-controlled areas, the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases has approximated 350,000, of whom 157,000 recovered, and 15,497 died.
It is worth noting that regime Ministry of Health’ official statistics announced 15,282 infections, of whom 1,004 people died and 9,389 recovered.
It is worth noting that the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the death of 172 doctors in the Syrian regime-held areas due to coronavirus in 2020, and they were documented by names.
