COVID-19 Cases Almost Tripled in Three Weeks

The number of COVID-19 cases has almost tripled in the past three weeks. As of October 26, 2020 there are 4281 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 21 deaths in northwest Syria. The numbers continue to rise. UOSSM is on the ground responding by establishing isolation centers, providing hygiene kits, which include masks and sanitizers, and distributing nutritious food, to help build immunity, training staff on handling the Coronavirus, and providing educational materials to the families in displacement camps on how to protect themselves from COVID-19. We continue to pray for everyone’s safety and urge people to please wash your hands, wear masks and maintain social distancing when possible.
