COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update: There are now 725 cases of COVID-19 in northwest Syria, 71 of the new cases were in the past 24 hours.

UOSSM Isolation Centers

UOSSM has established isolation centers throughout northern Syria. The goal of these centers is to ultimately save lives by isolating cases and suspected cases of COVID-19. The centers admit patients with minor to moderate cases, providing them with the medical attention they require, while containing the coronavirus, preventing an outbreak which could be catastrophic. Patients with confirmed or suspected cases are sent to the isolation centers from primary and secondary healthcare centers through a coordinated referral network. Patients are transported via vehicles exclusive to COVID-19 patients. We hope these measures will prevent an outbreak in crowded areas in northern Syria.


UOSSM Continues COVID-19 Response with Isolation Centers

UOSSM continues its response plan to the coronavirus as confirmed cases continue to rise, by opening 2 isolation centers in Armanaz and Harbanoosh in northern Syria. There were 52 new cases of COVID-19 in the region bringing the total confirmed number of cases to 265.
We will continue to do what we can to protect the people from this deadly virus which could cause dire circumstances in crowded areas of displacement. Please support our work to help save lives.
