Nearly 100,000 new coronavirus cases in regime-held areas | 700 people die of the virus, while regime government continues misinformation
As SOHR continues monitoring and tracking the escalating number of coronavirus cases and deaths in regime-held areas, reliable medical sources in regime-controlled areas have confirmed that nearly 99,000 new Covid-19 cases have been detected in all Syrian provinces in the past few days, while 696 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, through announcing about only tens of deaths daily at a time when a large number of deaths are claimed to be caused by pneumonia, despite the broad outbreak of the virus throughout Syria. Moreover, the intense care sections in several areas have reached their full operational capacity. On the other hand, the vaccination process is still underway. However, civilians fear of the poor storage of the vaccination.
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 reached 3,800,000, of whom 3,400,000 recovered, and 37,878 died.
It is worth noting that regime Ministry of Health’ official statistics announced 29,221 infections, of whom 2,066 people died and 22,683 recovered.
It is also worth noting that the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the death of 211 doctors in the Syrian regime-held areas due to coronavirus, and they were documented by names, among them there were 172 doctors died in 2020.
