The Health Ministry will announce a mechanism to deliver monthly medications for patients, and any emergency drugs through health centers under the supervision of voluntary medical teams, an official said today.

Director of the Amman Health Directorate, Nayef Zaben stated that the move comes after the closure of health centers that provide primary and comprehensive care as part of the measures to slow the spread of the COVID-19.

In cases of emergency, the Civil Defense Directorate's crews will evacuate the patient to a hospital in an effort to prevent overcrowding and safeguard citizens, he pointed out.
