Disinfection Drive Held in Deraa Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Activists from Deraa camp for Palestinian refugees in cooperation with popular committees affiliated with Fatah Movement launched a campaign to disinfect UNRWA schools and the local mosque. Disinfectants were also sprayed across alleyways and access roads.

Last month, two residents of the Palestinian refugee camp of Deraa tested positive for coronavirus. Both residents, members of the same family, quarantined themselves at their house. 

Confirmed coronavirus cases have been increasingly reported in Palestinian refugee camps in Syria, at a time when residents have been launching cries for help over the absence of hygiene kit and medicines.

Civilians continue to slam UNRWA’s apathy, saying an urgent action is needed to save the displacement camps.

Over recent months, AGPS has also warned of a projected outbreak of COVID-19 in Palestinian refugee camps in Syria. Though campaigns to help spread awareness among the camps’ residents have seen the day, limited access to running water, pharmacies and medical facilities mean displacement camps are more susceptible to the spread of the highly infectious virus.

Displacement camps set up in northern Syria are especially vulnerable as most hospitals and medical facilities have been bombed, rendering them out of order.
