Deir Ez-Zor – Tuesday, February 2, 2021 – Today, the SRTF’s intervention, “Emergency Response for COVID-19 in Deir Ez-Zor”, began rehabilitation works in preparation for the COVID-19 specialized center in Deir Ez-Zor. In addition to these works, this intervention received a shipment of medical equipment and some office equipment. The equipment will be used at the SRTF-funded COVID-19 hospital in Deir Ez-Zor. The delivered items included pulse oximeters, nebulizers, infrared thermometers, stethoscopes, X-ray photo readers, and more. The project is expecting additional medical and non-medical equipment in the coming weeks.

With a budget of EUR 1.7 million, the intervention’s treatment center will be able to accommodate 1,120 patients at any given time.
