The Director of Ajloun Health Directorate, Dr. Tayseer Annab, said that the epidemiological investigation teams have identified those who had contact with the vegetable distributor in Kufranjah, Ajloun, who is infected with coronavirus, confirming that the results of the tests will be available tomorrow morning.

In an exclusive interview with "Roya" today, Annab added that the infected person has been quarantined at King Abdullah University Hospital, stressing that his family and people close to him were examined and his house and the surrounding area have been sterilized.

He urged citizens in Ajloun to abide by the instructions and advice provided by the Ministry of Health.

The vegetable seller and trader, who is a resident of Kufranjah, tested positive yesterday after he had direct contact with his infected brother who had returned from the United Kingdom.

Before he tested positive for the virus, the man was asked by the medical staff to stay home as a precaution, yet he refused.
