As though life in Syria is not challenging enough, a silent, deadly crisis is swallowing up parts of the country and citizens and healthcare workers are becoming desperate.
We’re talking, of course, about the deadly spread of COVID-19. According to one report, official numbers count less than 2,000 cases, yet healthcare officials estimate well over 100,000 in the Damascus area only. Unfortunately, those officials are threatened with harsh consequences if they share that news.
Yet, news is seeping out. Take a look at this article written anonymously by a medic working in Syria.
Today, will you take a few minutes to pray for the people of Syria? We can only imagine what life is like in a war-torn country, now ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic. May God’s mercy and grace rain down on the people of Syria.
