The prospect of a comprehensive lockdown during Eid al-Adha depends on Jordan’s epidemiological status, Nazir Obaidat, spokesman for the National Committee for Epidemics said on Sunday, June 28.

COVID-19 cases are increasing worldwide but the situation in Jordan is currently stable, the number of cases is low and the outbreak is under control, said Obaidat.

There are currently three cases in the Intensive Care Unit, one is critical and the other two are using respirators.

He stressed the importance of following social distancing guidelines, as well as wearing gloves and masks.
