The Response

The suspected measles cases reported in Hamah (a girl, 15 months) and Tartous (a girl, 10 years) were discarded since the lab results of the blood sample were negative. Other investigation measures were also taken in both governorates.

Necessary response measures were taken for the leishmaniais cases in Hamah and Aleppo which included: managing the cases, ensuring the availability of medicines and ensuring sanitation measures in accordance with available capacity.

Other response measures were taken such as follow-up TB cases, ensuring the safety of food and drinking water and health education sessions.
