Pandemic intervention teams work around the clock in Rojava

The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria has established emergency teams due to the corona pandemic. These emergency intervention teams to combat the virus work around the clock.

The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria is doing everything possible to prevent or at least limit the spread of the corona virus in the region. It has announced a curfew and set up emergency intervention teams. These teams can be reached by telephone. After the callers have been questioned about symptoms, the teams immediately go to the people suspected to have been affected by corona.

Simav Ibrahim tells the following about the work in the team: "I work in a health station in Qamishlo. Following a call, we were informed about the suspected case of a four-year-old boy. The child had high fever. We examined the child and sent samples to a laboratory. The result of the examination was negative."

The autonomous administration calls on people to disinfect their homes. But everything is lacking in this largely isolated region. In particular, the interruption of the water supply by Turkey is a massive problem in the fight against the pandemic.
