As of July 7, 2020, the Syrian Ministry of Health (MoH) has reported 372 COVID-19 cases across Syria: 232 active, 126 recoveries and 14 registered deaths.

The first positive case was announced on 22 March 2020, with the first fatality reported on 29 March 2020. Although no movement restrictions have been imposed in  Syria  recently,  the  Syrian  government  is  still  taking  active  steps  towards  ensuring  that  precautionary measures are followed in public service facilities and universities. The ongoing economic crisis has exacerbated humanitarian needs of the more than 11 million people across Syria in need. The poverty rate is over 90 percent.

This report covers UNFPA's COVID-19 response in Syria for the period 1-30 June 2020.
