Palestinian Refugee Woman Succumbs to Coronavirus in Northern Syria Displacement Camp

Palestinian refugee Kifayat Khaled Amayri has died of coronavirus in Deir Ballout displacement camp, north of Syria.

Kifayat tested positive for the virus last week. Her health condition took a turn for the worse due to very low levels of blood oxygen and the absence of healthcare services in the area. She breathed her last at the Military Hospital in Efrin.

The victim’s family have appealed to the concerned authorities in Syria and international humanitarian organizations to take urgent action regarding the alarming situation in displacement camps set up in northern Syria, where neither medical staff nor equipment are available.

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 medicines, detergents, and disinfectants 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.
