Amman's governor Saad al-Shehab said that 144 citizens and four establishments violated the 24-hour total lockdown measures in Amman between 10pm Thursday and until 12pm Friday.

However, Shehab stressed that generally, people and establishments across the capital showed commitment to the lockdown restrictions.

Feb. 24, the government announced the reimposition of Friday lockdowns in Jordan, in addition to new curfew hours, in an effort to halt the sudden jump in coronavirus numbers.

The Friday lockdown, which was originally instituted in October, was cancelled Jan. 13 after the King issued a Royal directive to reopen sectors.
