Coronavirus in War Zones: Syria and Yemen
Meanwhile in Syria, the true extent of the coronavirus is unknown, according to Fadel Abdul Ghany, executive director of the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR), because President Bashar Assad has politicized the virus.
“While COVID-19 spread everywhere, the regime didn’t announce the number of cases and they keep denying COVID even exists in Syria. They have threatened anyone who announces deaths resulting from COVID,” he told The Media Line.
According to SNHR, in the first five months of this year, nine medical personnel were killed and 21 were either detained without cause or subject to enforced disappearances. Today, at least 3,353 medical personnel are in prison or have been taken against their will, their whereabouts unknown.
