Syria Is Overwhelmed By Coronavirus As Govt Conceals Outbreak, Health Worker Says

A medic checks the temperature of a Syrian worshipper before entering the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus to attend Friday prayer on May 15. To try to slow the coronavirus outbreak, the Syrian government has banned mass prayers and asked Syrians to stay home over the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha this weekend.

Medical workers in and outside the country say there’s a lack of medicine and tests.
