Activists Call for Compulsory Mask-Wearing in Khan Eshieh Camp

Activists in Khan Eshieh camp for Palestinian refugees have launched calls for wearing face masks to prevent coronavirus contamination. 

The following hashtagh “mask is not a sin” has been circulated to urge the residents to abide by such a preventive tip. Photos of a number of Khan Eshieh residents wearing masks have also been posted on social media.

Concerns have mounted over a striking increase in coronavirus cases in and around Palestinian refugee camps in Syria, where the number of confirmed infections has already soared.

Medics sounded distress signals over the acute shortage in staff and equipment along with fuel needed to operate power generators at hospitals. The number of infections is estimated to get at least three times higher.

The Health Ministry’s coronavirus team said wearing face masks and respecting social distancing has become an obligation at commercial centers and public facilities. Those who violate such orders will have to pay a fine of 8,000 Syrian pounds.
