As of 26 May 2020, Syria had reported a total of 121 confirmed COVID-19 cases. Since the first case of COVID-19 was reported on 23 March 2020, the Government of Syria introduced several measures that remain in place to minimise the risks of COVID-19 transmission, including movement restrictions between governorates and a daily national curfew between 19:30 and 06:00. Other restrictions that had been in place, such as the closing of public institutions and local businesses, have eased in the last few weeks, under the condition that social distancing and health safety measures are respected. These measures immediately impacted UNFPA’s capacity to deliver and monitor current activities, though remote surge deployments and new modalities of service provision have ensured that critical services have continued to be delivered.
