14-day lockdown in Raqqa
The lockdown in Raqqa comes after the Health Committee of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria announced an increasing number of Covid-10 infections in the region.
The Democratic Civil Administration of Raqqa issued a circular announcing the start of a 14-day quarantine on the area as a precaution to prevent the outbreak of the Corona epidemic.
The Civil Administration said in the circular issued today in this regard: "In line with the requirements of the public interest, in the interest for the safety of all our people, and based on the decision of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria No. 86 issued on 29/07/2020, the following is circulated:

The institutions of Raqqa Council remain on the top of their job, while strengthening medical centers in the countryside.
There will be an obstruction of gatherings of all kinds and forms; cafes, swimming pools, group prayers, weddings, condolence tents, and others.
