“Our plan is to vaccinate up to 25 percent of the Syrian population by the end of 2021,” said Tawfiq Hasaba, head of the ministry’s emergency department.
In the current month, he announced that 50,000 doctors, nurses, technicians and administrators in the health sector in various provinces will be thankful for a batch of vaccines that recently came from a friendly country without being named.
To date, 2,500 workers have been vaccinated in isolated areas with direct contact with the sick, the manager said.
He also clarified that with the completion of vaccination in the health sector, the elderly will start getting vaccinated in the education sector.
According to data released by the Ministry of Health, the highest number of months infected with the SARS-COV-2 corona virus was reported between March 22, 2020, which is the first confirmed case of COV-19.
Syria is facing a stagnation and epidemic amid severe sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union, preventing the importation of essential medical equipment and supplies.
