Saturday, a member of the National Committee for Epidemics Bassam Hijjawi said Jordan is at the end of the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic. He told Roya that there is a significant decrease in the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the Kingdom.

He added that the daily positive PCR test rate in Jordan reached three and four percent, which is an indication of a decrease over the last period.

Hijjawi said COVID-19 vaccination numbers in Jordan have not reached the desired percentage. He said that no country in the world is immune to a third wave of the pandemic, adding that the percentage of vaccinated individuals is not high enough to have achieved herd immunity.

A member of the National Committee for Epidemics predicted that if another wave of the pandemic occurs, it would be 'light' due to the high demand for COVID-19 vaccination among citizens.

He noted that the period between the first and second wave of the pandemic in Jordan was only two weeks.

He stressed the need for citizens to adhere to health and safety measures including social distancing.
