Friday, the Minister of Health Feras Hawari told Roya’s Helwa Ya Donya that the government’s main goal is to return to in-person education in all schools and universities across Jordan.
Hawari added that after the gradual reopening of sectors, a slight increase in the number of coronavirus cases is expected. However, he stressed that it will not be like the first and second waves.
Regarding the coronavirus vaccines, Hawari confirmed that no deaths were recorded as a result of receiving the coronavirus vaccine in Jordan, noting that around 1.6 million people received the first dose of the vaccine in the Kingdom.
He also pointed out that around 280,000 people in Jordan got vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine, and more than 400 million people around the world, stressing that all vaccines are safe and effective.
Hawari indicated that mixing the coronavirus vaccines is unlikely, but it is possible. He said there is no scientific study on this matter yet.
He called on everyone in the governorates to receive the coronavirus vaccine, pointing out that the governorates’ demand for vaccinations is weak in comparison to Amman.
Additionally, Hawari said it is still too early to stop adhering to wearing face masks in Jordan.
He lastly pointed out that Prince Hamzah Hospital is free of coronavirus patients.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Jordan has confirmed a total of 738,521 cases and 9,500 deaths.
