The COVID-19 pandemic in Syria is part of the ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was confirmed to have reached Syria on 22 March 2020, when the first case was confirmed of a person who came from abroad.[4]

Syria is considered especially vulnerable to the pandemic due to the ongoing civil war and dire humanitarian situation.[5][6]

Background[edit]

On 12 January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that a novel coronavirus was the cause of a respiratory illness in a cluster of people in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, which was reported to the WHO on 31 December 2019.[7][8]

Many people in Syria did not have confidence in the government's transparency during the pandemic, accusing it of hiding the true numbers of cases and deaths,[9][10][11][12] especially in Damascus, Rif Dimashq, and Aleppo.[13][14][15] It has been speculated that doctors in hospitals and medical facilities were being threatened by being fired or even being arrested and detained by the government forces if they said anything about the truth of what's happening in the hospitals.[16][17] It has also been rumoured that the Syrian state has even gone so far as to suggest terminating the lives of suspected COVID-19 patients.[18] Which led to people who are experiencing some symptoms or even being sure about being infected not telling the government nor seeking governmental or even private medical care, and quarantining themselves at home as possible out of fear.[19] Analysts reasoning with these claims highlight the example of misinformation about the government's numbers is the number of cases registered in neighboring countries of people arriving from Syria, and sometimes that number in one day is greater than those reported by the Syrian government during a certain period of time.[20][21]

The Syrian government along with its allies claims that the ongoing civil war, combined with the economic situation in Syria and sanctions by western governments, limit the capacity in which adequate COVID-19 PCR tests can be conducted and prevent vital supplies for treating and managing the pandemic from being imported.[22][23]

Confirmed cases not included in the official count[edit]

  • A 53-year-old male resident of Syria's Kurdish-administered northeast died in early April of COVID-19, according to an email from the World Health Organization (WHO) obtained by The Associated Press on 17 April.[46] The death in the city of Qamishli was not reported by the Syrian government, and is the first to be traced back to the northeast, a region that has restricted access to outside assistance and where testing capabilities are unavailable.[46] It is not clear why the death, although reported to WHO, was not added to the Syrian government's official tally. The man, who had no travel history outside the country, died in a government-run hospital in Qamishli and was tested positive in a Damascus government lab (the results came back the same day he died), but Kurdish authorities in the region were not notified.[46][2]
The alleged document that Hasaka's director of agriculture is supposedly informing the governor that the results of a COVID-19 test for an employee there came back positive.
  • On 28 April, an image of a document claimed to be from Hasaka's official Directorate of Agriculture circulated on the internet. In the document, the director of agriculture is supposedly informing Hasaka's governor that the results of a COVID-19 test for an employee in the directorate came back positive and that the employee's job was accounting and handing employees their monthly salaries, and that he had contact with many people and co-workers at a time when he was believed to have the virus. But the employee's case was not added to the Syrian government's official COVID-19 cases count.
  • A doctor in his 30s working at Bab al-Hawa hospital in Idlib near the Turkish border was tested positive on 9 July after he experienced symptoms and asked to be tested.[3][244][245] But the Syrian government did not report the case because it's in a rebel-held territory. Two more cases were registered in rebel-held Idlib the next day.[246] later, the number of cases reached 4.[247]
  • News networks reported that the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria reported four cases; three in Qamishli and one Al-Hasakah.[248]
  • On 4 August, some local news networks said that the number of cases in the Kurdish-led northeastern region of Rojava has reached 54 including cases in Aleppo Governorate.[249]
  • By November 2020, 8,139 cases were reported in Opposition held areas northwest Syria, and 3,948 cases were reported in Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria.[250]

Resources and facilities[edit]

Testing[edit]

During July and going through August, many individuals and organizations saw that the government has lost control over the COVID-19 situation. The Ministry of Health itself said many times that its testing capabilities are not enough,[251][252][172] and that many asymptomatic and symptomatic cases may go unnoticed because it's not possible to do widespread or random testing.[252] Many local news networks and organizations said that hospitals are even refusing to admit patients with mild symptoms, and only accept those who need critical and intensive care.[253][254] Some hospitals announced in early August that they have no more places for COVID-19 patients to be admitted, and asked anyone who suspects of being infected to self-quarantine at home instead of going to hospital.[254] The Syrian government claims that the ongoing civil war, combined with the economic situation in Syria and sanctions by western governments, limit the capacity in which adequate COVID-19 PCR tests can be conducted and prevent vital supplies for treating and managing the pandemic from being imported.[22][23] Health care professionals claimed the country was overwhelmed by cases and that the government had engaged in an intimidation campaign to suppress information of the outbreak.[255][12]

According to Human Rights Watch, the Syrian government failed to protect health workers at the front line of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the government-held territory. WHO has provided the Syrian government with 4.4 million items of PPE, including medical and respirator masks, gloves. However, doctors and nurses operating in government-held areas said that there were still severe shortages of supplies, particularly in rural areas.[256]

According to the Syrian Ministry of Health, there are six labs that are able to test for the coronavirus located in four governorates.[1]

Institutional quarantine[edit]

According to the Syrian Ministry of Health, there are 33 quarantine centers for suspected COVID-19 cases located in 13 governorates (All governorates Except Idlib).[1]

Treatment centers[edit]

According to the Syrian Ministry of Health, there are 21 Treatment centers dedicated for COVID-19 patients located in 12 governorates.[1]

Quarantine and isolation[edit]

According to the state media organization SANA, the Ministry of Health started quarantining suspected cases and people coming from outside the country in free-of-charge dedicated quarantine facilities from 5 February 2020.[257]
