The rise in coronavirus cases in Jordan is not cause for concern as hospitals are still capable of handling the outbreak, said the Minister of Health, Nathir Obaidat Friday.

Additionally, Obaidat said the ministry is working on increasing health capabilities in both public and private sectors, which include increasing the number of beds and equipment in hospitals across the country.

Obaidat added a total of 300 beds have been already provided to designated hospitals.

The recovery cases since the beginning of the crisis in the Kingdom has reached 7,449.
