As of 8 May 2020, Syria reported a total of 47 confirmed COVID-19 cases: 15 active, 29 recovered and 3 registered deaths.

Since the first case of COVID-19 was reported in Syria on March 23rd, the Government of Syria has introduced measures amid fears of a spike of the novel coronavirus. Movement restrictions between governorates, as well as a countrywide curfew from 19:30 until 06:00 are still in place in effort to minimize the risks of COVID-19 infections.
