No significant issue was reported during this week.

The Response

The suspected measles case reported in Damascus (in a health centre called 7th of April, a boy of 13 years old); was discarded since the lab result of the blood sample collected was negative. The results of the lab tests for the three suspected measles cases (in Damascus, Tartous and Lattkai) were not received yet.

Other necessary response measures were taken for the reported other diseases (i.e., follow up of the TB and hepatitis cases, ensuring the safety of water and food and conducting health education sessions).
