Saturday, a specialist in chest diseases, critical care and sleep diseases, Mohammad Hassan al-Tarawneh called on the government to tighten health restrictions in order to avoid a third wave of COVID-19 in Jordan.

In a statement to Roya, Tarawneh warned of citizens’ lack of commitment to coronavirus precautionary measures which include social distancing and wearing face masks.

Tarawneh stressed that the percentage of vaccinated individuals is not high enough to have achieved herd immunity.

He also talked about the COVID-19 mutations in Jordan, pointing out that there are 100 new cases of different coronavirus mutants that were recently detected in the Kingdom, considering this a dangerous indication that the third wave has begun.

He lastly called for extending the working hours of the vaccination centers to enable the largest possible number of individuals to receive the coronavirus vaccine.
