Under directions by Head of the Syrian Interim Government, Abdurrahman Mustafa, the Health Directorate in Aleppo of the Ministry of Health continues preparations for the launch of a new sterilization campaign in the IDP camps and SIG’s institutions.
The move came as part of the prevention measures the SIG is taking to stem coronavirus in the liberated areas.
Director of Health in Aleppo, Muhammad Kurdi, said that the Health Directorate has launched a large-scale campaign to sterilize IDP camps, public places, institutions, mosques, universities and schools in northern rural Aleppo.
