The Minister of State for Media Affairs, Amjad Adaileh, said that Jordan recorded a decrease in the number of new COVID-19 cases, as only 11 cases were confirmed today.
During a press briefing at the National Center for Security and Crisis Management, Adaileh said that the "decrease doesn't mean that the risk has gone."
"The situation still needs great caution, and adherence to public safety and prevention instructions, commitment to curfews, and strict precautionary measures taken by the government," Adaileh confirmed.
He pointed out that many countries in the world where the virus has spread witnessed a variation in the numbers of cases from day to day, and therefore the decrease today doesn't indicate that the epidemic has gone.
"We hope that the day will come soon when we officially announce the end of this epidemic, so that life will return to normal. How much time would this take depends on you, your awareness, and on how well everyone adheres to the general safety and prevention instructions, and not having direct contact with each other," Adaileh stated.
He pointed out that the period of the curfew depends on people's commitment, which the government hopes will be a full commitment.
"We also witnessed a decrease in the number of citizens' complaints about price increases, the lack of availability of goods, and the supply of agricultural products, and this necessarily reflects the integrity of the measures we have taken," he stressed.
The Minister stressed that "the government will continue to take more measures and decisions, in accordance with the comments we receive, and in a way that makes it easier for all citizens to be provided with the basic needs."
