The Health Affairs Director for Ma'an Amjad Abu Darwish Thursday announced that the field hospital in Ma'an is 90 percent complete.
The field hospital will only receive confirmed COVID-19 patients.
Abu Darwish said the hospital is equipped with 250 beds, 50 of which are intensive care beds. Additionally, a number of qualified medical personnel including nursing, technical and administrative staff, have been appointed to work at the hospital once it opens.
Abu Darwish confirmed that the COVID-19 investigation teams in Ma'an are doing their job by taking approximately 350 samples everyday and conducting PCR tests across the governorate.
There is a significant decrease in the number of positive cases due to citizens' compliance with preventive measures, he added.
