Three more cases were confirmed to have been infected with the COVID-19 in Syria, bringing the total number of the confirmed cases to four, the Syrian Health Ministry said Wednesday.


The three cases were from a group of passengers being put into a quarantine center in the Dweir area in the countryside of the capital Damascus last week.


Over the past week, the Syrian government has applied a series of measures aimed to stop all interactions and gatherings, such as suspending schools and universities, as well as closing marketplaces and restaurants.


The government also halted public transport across the country and has imposed a partial 12-hour curfew.
