The AMAN mobile application has received mixed responses from locals.

Authorities have continued to stress the importance of downloading and activating the app, to protect citizens from contracting coronavirus.

Those who do not comply will face fines and official warnings.

The government has been conducting inspections to ensure employees in public and private sector institutions have downloaded the app.

The Minister of State for Media Affair, Amjad Al-Adaileh, said: "There has been a lack of compliance to precautionary measures in some public sector institutions.

"I would like to stress that the person in charge at any private or public facility will be questioned and held accountable for not abiding by precautionary methods which result in any negative implications that occur as a result of non-compliance with health and safety measures."

The Minister of Labour, Nidal Bataineh, said: "All private sector institutions should ensure employees download and activate the Aman app, and continue to follow-up with workers."

The app has received a mixed response from locals. Some understand its importance and consider it worth downloading, while others do not think it is necessary and are not convinced of its effectiveness.

The application enables the tracking of possible cases to identify all those who came into contact with positive cases and to ensure the necessary testing takes place.
