Displaced Families Fear Unabated Coronavirus Outbreak in Northern Syria

Concerns have mounted in displacement camps set up in northern Syria as coronavirus cases have been increasingly reported in the area.

The residents slammed AFAD for its mismanagement of the health crisis, saying more nurses should be sent to the area to take nose swabs and test suspected cases.

Over recent months, AGPS has warned of an unabated outbreak of COVID-19 in Palestinian refugee camps in Syria, where limited access to running water, pharmacies and medical facilities means 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.

AGPS stresses the need to supply Palestinian refugee camps with oxygen cylinders and medicines in order to help the displaced communities defend themselves against the deadly COVID-19 virus.

AGPS calls on the national and international humanitarian organizations and concerned authorities to set an emergency plan in order to help curtail the highly-contagious virus.
