The government is currently holding a press conference at the Prime Ministry building to discuss the latest developments on coronavirus and measures taken to fight the virus.

During the conference, Minister of Education, Tayseer Noaimi announced that students will be able to get their lessons through an online platform (Darsak.com.jo), confirming that the educational process will proceed throughout the semester normally.

"Televised lessons will be available for students of all grades who don't have internet access in their homes on the Sports Channel, scheduled to start as of this Tuesday," Noaimi stated.

He said that the e-learning platform will be offered for free and has no financial impact on parents.

"We are not in an ideal condition and we will face technological challenges...We are working being perfect in the coming period," Noaimi said.

For his part, Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply, Tariq al-Hammouri stressed that Jordan has sufficient stocks of all commodities, confirming that the military and civil consumer corporations across the Kingdom have all the demanded commodities.

Hammouri has called on citizens to avoid panic-buying and urged those who rush to the markets to get their needs of commodities, to take into account the expiry date of food commodities and to leave space between each other when they go shopping.

He pointed out that commercial freight traffic to and from Jordan will be operating as usual.

However, Minister of State for Media Affairs, Amjad Adaileh stressed that all arrivals from abroad will undergo medical examinations.

Adaileh said that people working in the private sector can also undergo corona test if they wish.
