Two new Coronavirus test machines have been provided to the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) Health Commission by the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG). This brings the total of all test machines in North and East Syria to four. There are four million residents of North and East Syria.
Dr. Jasin Mohamad, KRG-based physician who is trained in test machine and equipment use, gave the test machines directly to staff and personnel on April 23, 2020 at the border in the Jazira region through the Semalka crossing. Dr. Jiwan Mustafa, head of the AANES Health Commission, received these machines with Mustafa Bali, chief of communications for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Dr. Mohamad remained in North and East Syria in order to train medical staff and personnel on test machine use and related procedures.
