Syria Confirms First Novel COVID-19 Case

Illustrative image

The Ministry of Health of Syria announced on March 22 that it had registered the very first case of the notorious coronavirus in the war-torn country.

Health Minister Dr. Nizar Yazaji told the Syrian state-run TV that a 20-year old girl who returned from aboard has tested positive for COVID-19. The girl reportedly came from Lebanon.

The case was apparently detected right away. The girl, which is not showing any symptoms yet, has been placed under quarantine.

On March 22 morning, Syria entered a general lock down. The move was succeeded by several strict measures aiming at preventing a possible widespread of COVID-19 in the country. Schools, markets, government departments were shut down. public transportation are set to be suspended on March 23, when border with Lebanon will be also closed.

In the last two weeks, the Ministry of Health of Syria prepared many quarantine centers and medical points in different parts of the country.

Syria had called on the international community to pressure the U.S. and the EU into lifting their sanctions, which dealt a devastating blow to its economy over the last nine years. Damascus also held the U.S. and the EU responsible for the widespread of the virus in sanctioned countries, including Iran and Venezuela.

While Syria is making efforts to confront the threat of coronavirus, the country’s limited resources remain a real threat. A widespread of the virus in the Syria could lead to a tragedy far worse than everything we have seen, so far.

    Proof that god is protecting syria,now lets see who mocks PUTIN NEXT,MY MONEYS IN ON SOROS FUNDED HOMOSEXUAL,PRETENDETH TO GIVE A DAMN ABOUT SYRIANS!

  • Assad must stay

    Keep him away from Assad and SAA as far as possible

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Syria has no major threat as Iran is on top of the problem. This bio-warfare by the Americunts and Jews was directed mainly at Iran and China and both of them quickly united in defeating it. I have the highest respect for China, it showed its class and ancient civilization values. China is a friend indeed and its ties wit Iran will reach very high levels now as China is also totally pissed off at the Americunt arseholes and the Chinese like Persians also have very long memories. FUCK AMERICUNTS!

      • Assad must stay

        Yes, I hope they take swift and severe revenge

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Americunts at their best LOL

          White supremacists encouraging their members to spread coronavirus to cops, Jews, FBI says

          The alert was sent to local police agencies by federal officials.

  • You can call me Al

    Why isn’t China assisting Syria in goods, food and medicines ?.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      There is no need as Iran has hundreds of doctors and medical personnel in Syria and Iran has as much expertise in defeating this Americunt bio-warfare attack. China has helped Iran tremendously and Iran is responsible for assisting Syrians. In any case Syria has very low risk as it has a good medical system and Iran has successful experience in handling this anyway. The Americunts have scored a major home goal.

    BREAKING NEWS: The Russkie Military have sent over 500 soldiers to Italy in order to “help” with the Coronavirus outbreak. HOWEVER, it is very likely they will use this opportunity to ANNEX Italy, just as what they did with CRIMEA in 2014!

    Be cautious and stay aware! The next 72 hours may reveal the Russkies TRUE intentions for Italy. Just don’t be surprised if “masked unidentified gunmen” takeover all Italy airports and military bases soon. CRIMEA 2.0

    • TORKI OP #8 STRONK

      lol ok cunt

    • Pave Way IV

      This can’t be true. It wouldn’t take more than 250 Russian troops. 300, tops. I’m assuming the Swiss Guard would stand down. Don’t let the pantaloons fool you – those guys are crazy dangerous.

      Honey, you’ve missed the train. A number of European countries have applied to be annexed by Russia. South America has declared full diligence to Russia, African countries have already formed a union of the Russian African countries and only the “five eyes” are still discussing should they apply or wait for a miracle

    that SF refuses to censor the functionally illiterate CIA trolls that post here should be admired—these insecure feminized entertain w their self humiliation…while Russia is assisting Syria, Italy, Iran, the full of feces amerikans r hoarding toilet paper and consuming marijuana—their self loathing, fear and anxiety is world class–also their sexual repression, stupidity, shallowness…today they all sexually abuse mobile phones

    Don’t be afraid of this weak NothingBurger Covid virus, less lethal than the yearly Flu in prev. years. The US F.D. military lab it was engineered in messed up and created a mutated strain that can even make beneficial modifications to your DNA, depending on your internal make-up.

    What you can be afraid of with all due freaking out is the 2021-2022 real heavyweight virus that will fill the streets with bodies in need to be collected.
