Within the Syria crisis region, which spans the whole of Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt, there have been a total of 129,407 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of April 30, 2020. The highest number of confirmed cases came from Turkey (120,204), followed by Egypt (5,537), Iraq (2,085), and Jordan (453). Only 43 cases were reported in Syria. By April, UNFPA country offices throughout the region had already readjusted its programmes and work plans, putting short and long-term plans in place to ensure continuity of operations despite expected challenges.

Throughout the region, curfews, lockdowns and movement restrictions continue to present similar challenges. Turkey, for instance, has been under social distancing and movement restriction  requirements from 17 March 2020, which have resulted in business closures and challenges in accessing essential services.
