The Syrian Ministry of Health stated that the number of COVID 19 positive cases in Syria has reached 738 cases in total.
21 new cases were discovered today, and one patient died while positive with the COVID 19 virus, the Syrian Ministry of Health added in its statement.
The number of cases per province yesterday 29 July 2020 was as follows:
The Syrian Ministry of Health warned the public to take all necessary precautions as advised in its awareness campaigns adding that it does not have the capabilities to carry out wide tests for the virus in the different provinces due to the US and EU economic sanctions imposed on the country, therefore.
The diplomatic missions of the United States of America and its cronies of the NATO alliance at the United Nations Security Council campaigned viciously earlier this month to open ‘humanitarian corridors’ for al-Qaeda terrorists in their last stronghold in Idlib and campaigned much more aggressively in the same resolution not to include a call to ease the sanctions imposed on the healthcare sector in Syria to enable the country better handling of the pandemic, a norm in the double-faced hypocrite humanitarian guise the NATO alliance use as a cover for their continuous crimes against the Syrian people for the past 9.5 years.
Instead of easing the economic sanctions that block the Syrian banking system access to international markets which in turn prevent the ministry of health from buying essential medicine and equipment, the United States imposed its Caesar Act regime of unprecedented sanctions against Syria last month in what Trump calls his ‘maximum pressure policy’ to change the behavior of people in sovereign countries to accept the US hegemony. Similarly, the hapless EU countries cowered to the US pressure and renewed their regime of sanctions on the Syrian people one more year earlier last month.
