Tuesday, the Minister of State for Media Affairs, Sakher Dudin, said that there has been a noticeable decline in citizens’ commitment to the required health and safety measures, which include social distancing and wearing face masks.
Dudin stressed that these indicators are ‘dangerous and worrying.’
He said that this could negatively affect the epidemiological situation in the Kingdom, which has witnessed stability during the past weeks.
Additionally, he noted that the lack of commitment may slow down the government’s plan to gradually reopen sectors.
Dudin added that the government aims to vaccinate the largest possible number of people in order to prevent a third wave of the coronavirus pandemic in Jordan.
Earlier Tuesday, the Minister of Health, Feras Hawari, called on citizens not to be complacent and to continue adhering to the required health and safety measures which include social distancing and wearing face masks.
Hawari called on citizens and residents of Jordan to register to receive the coronavirus vaccine, stressing that all vaccines approved by the Jordan Food and Drug Administration (JFDA) are safe and effective.
The Kingdom recorded eight deaths and 599 new COVID-19 cases Tuesday.
