Jordanian Ministry of Agriculture refuted the rumor, which has recently spread on social media platforms, that Leishmaniasis cases have been spotted in the Kingdom.
Official Spokesperson in the Ministry, Lawrance Majali, clarified on Sunday morning that such allegations are anything but true. He assured that there were no reported cases of infected animals in the past.
“Leishmaniasis is a disease transmitted by sandflies which carry these parasites to humans, wild animals and pets … The Ministry, through its veterinary staff in all governorates of the Kingdom, is conducting continuous control campaigns against parasites and insects.” Majali added.
