Highlights

According to the latest surveillance data from WHO Syria, 92 deaths (case fatality rate 0.3 per cent) and 35,569 suspected cases of cholera have been reported between 25 August and 9 November 2022. The number of confirmed and suspected cases continues to increase rapidly. While all 14 governorates reported confirmed cases, the governorates depending on Euphrates River for water and sewage remain among the most affected. The water level of the Euphrates River continues to decrease, reaching a similar level to 2021, with an impact on electricity supply as well as water quality, production, and distribution. Although the Alouk water station resumed operations at the end of October, about half a million people in Al Hasakeh city and neighbouring areas are still not receiving sufficient quantities of safe water.
