Parties and get-togethers are currently put on hold amid government strict measures to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country.
However, medical staff and employees in one of the Dead Sea hotels, used as a quarantine center, have celebrated the birthday of a three-year-old boy this morning.
They just gathered in the square of the hotel, sang him the birthday song and wished him a happy birthday.
A video circulated on social media platforms showing the celebration.
Nearly 5,000 people were quarantined in a number of hotels in the Dead Sea and Amman as a precautionary measure after they returned from countries with coronavirus cases.
