In light of the epidemic that is hitting the world, its repercussions on all areas of life, and the precautionary steps taken by all the states of the world to confront the disease, Assad regime and its militias continue to underestimate the danger and the measures that must be taken at least to detect it.
According to Deir Ezzor 24 network correspondent, a medical team has been recently sent to Al-Salhiyah crossing north of Deir Ezzor between the areas controlled by the SDF and those of Assad’s forces in Deir Ezzor, where civilians are massed in a small space near the SDF checkpoint, which puts them at risk of infection, before the medical team start the tests at the crossing.
On the other side (the side of Assad’s forces), the situation is no better, where according to some eyewitnesses, four Russian nurses, who do not speak the Arabic language well and do not carry devices with them, ask the people (Are you infected with Covid 19?), ( Is your temperature high?), (Do you feel something like sweating, nausea….?), which aroused scorn and ridicule among the people passing through that crossing.
Deir Ezzor province is the most vulnerable region in Syria to the spread of Covid 19, due to the continued influx of the so-called Iranian pilgrims into Deir Ezzor areas, without being subjected to any test, as it is not allowed to examine or even question them, according to the orders of Assad regime.
