The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has denied reports of a coronavirus-related death for a Jordanian living abroad.

"We have not been formally reported on coronavirus cases among Jordanian citizens abroad," Ministry’s Ambassador, Daifallah al-Fayez said this morning, confirming that the Jordanian doctor, who passed away in Italy last week, was diagnosed with an acute heart attack, not with the coronavirus.

He pointed out that consular work in countries experiencing outbreaks of the coronavirus has been reduced and limited to the necessary cases, as a precaution to preserve the health and safety of Jordanian citizens.

He also affirmed the efforts of the Ministry and the Jordanian embassies abroad to check on Jordanian citizens, and provide them with all possible services.
