Jordan reached 'coexistence with coronavirus stage' says health expert

The Kingdom has reached the "coexistence with coronavirus" stage, said the head of the Health Committee at the National Center for Human Rights, Ibrahim Al-Bdour, on Friday.

"Anyone who shows symptoms of a cold is infected with Coronavirus, unless proven otherwise," Bdour said.

"Jordan has dealt with the coronavirus crisis in its own way using closures, which worked for a specific period of time but the Kingdom has been paying the price over the past five months," he added.

This has affected Jordan's health system and economy as a result, said Bdour.

He said Jordan is approximately five months behind the rest of the world in terms of the coronavirus crisis.

The development of the COVID-19 situation in Jordan is 'strange' and the local health system differs from the rest of the world, he said.
