*(COVID-19) Updates in Gaza Strip, May 20, 2020*
💫MoH confirmed 7 new cases of Covid 19 today, which brings the total toll since the beginning of April 2020 to 30 cases ; 16 of them have recovered, the remaining 14 are being isolated under treatment. Most of the patients have been asymptomatic and no critical cases recorded among them.
💫Preventive medical department at MOH are testing hundreds of samples among Gaza returnees for Covid-19 and we are still waiting the results.
💫MoH has been providing medical services for more than 1630 returnees in 16 different quarantine centers.
💫MOH has been suffering from a chronic shortage of medicine and medical supplies, such as essential drugs, medical supplies, and laboratory reagents .
💫Gaza’s portion of the total medical assistant should have been 47 million USD from Ramalla MOH, but the actual amount on the ground was limited to 5% of the annual requirement.
💫Today, we are still appealing to the United Nations, and the bodies of concern to urgently provide the health sector in Gaza with medical consumables, medicines, personal protective equipment PPE, ventilators, and examination kits to diagnose COVID19, to preserve the lives of the population. We also appeal to pressurize the occupation authorities to end the suffocating siege that has been affecting all humanitarian aspects of 2 million Gazans for more than 13 years.
