In Syria, the escalation of violence in Hajin in Deir-ez-Zor Governorate has led to the
displacement of over 25,000 people to Al Hol camp (since December 2018 until end of
January 2019), which currently hosts some 35,000 people and has largely surpassed its
maximum capacity. The majority of the displaced are women, children and elderly
people, who endured a difficult journey of 300 kilometers with limited food, water and
shelter, often reaching the camp in critical health conditions. Due to ongoing insecurity
and proximity to areas of active conflict, humanitarian access in the Hajin area remains
severely restricted, however, UNICEF is in discussions to establish a reception area to
deliver life-saving assistance en route to Al Hol camp.

Currently, the greatest concern centres on the neighbouring urban areas of Katwa and Butembo, which continue to contribute about three-quarters of recent cases. Clusters in other areas of North Kivu and Ituri provinces have been linked to chains of transmission in Katwa and Butembo, and have thus far been contained to limited local transmissions with relatively small numbers of cases. A total of 74 confirmed cases were reported during the last 21 days from 32 of the 125 health areas affected to date (Table 1). Risk of further chains of transmission and spread remain high, as highlighted by the recent spread to Lubero Health Zone, and reintroduction to Biena Health Zone following a prolonged period without new cases.
Depuis le début de l’épidémie, le cumul des cas est de 943, dont 878 confirmés et 65 probables. Au total, il y a eu 594 décès (529 confirmés et 65 probables) et 311 personnes guéries.
237 cas suspects en cours d’investigation ;
7 nouveaux cas confirmés, dont 2 à Kyondo, 2 à Katwa, 1 à Butembo, 1 à Masereka et 1 à Vuhovi ;
3 nouveaux décès de cas confirmés, dont
2 décès communautaires, dont 1 à Masereka et 1 à Katwa ;
1 décès au CTE de Mabalako (c’est un patient venant de Mandima) ;
1 nouveau patient guéri sorti du CTE Butembo.
