A researcher in epidemic statistics, Ma'an Addasi, revealed Tuesday that epidemic indicators within a statistical study conducted between the period of January 2020 and May 31, 2021, showed that there was one coronavirus-related death among every 78 cases in Jordan.

Addasi told Roya the study also compared the COVID-19 situation in Jordan to other Arab countries.

In terms of the indicator for the raw number of COVID-19 cases in the Arab world, Jordan came second after Iraq, while it came fourth in terms of the number of cases per million people.

On the other hand, Jordan came in fourth place among Arab countries in terms of raw number of deaths.

In terms of the number of deaths per million people, the Kingdom came in third.

Jordan's ranking within the death rate index for the number of injuries is at 1.3 percent, falling in twelfth place.

Addasi emphazied the aforementioned rate as an important indicator which highlights the strength of the healthcare system, and its ability to treat coronavirus cases while reducing mortality rates.
