The epidemiological inspection teams have started today to conduct random coronavirus tests in Salt governorate, northwest of Amman, as part of a mass-testing campaign throughout the Kingdom.
"Collecting samples is to monitor and follow up on areas where no COVID-19 cases were recorded," Director of Health Affairs in Balqa governorate Wael Al-Azab said, calling on citizens to cooperate with the investigation teams, as they are only doing a precautionary measure.
The official said that about 300 random samples were taken yesterday from people in Al-Baqa'a camp and rehabilitation centers to ensure that they are free of the virus.
