The Minister of Health, Dr. Firas Al-Hawari, said Saturday on Roya's Nabd Al Balad that 90 percent of those admitted to hospitals with coronavirus complications- or those who die from the virus- are not vaccinated. 

Al-Hawari stressed the need to take the vaccine, and cooperate with the Ministry of Health, though that does not mean mandating the vaccine in Jordan. 

Al-Hawari indicated that the Ministry of Health is monitoring the epidemiological situation seriously and needs the citizen's cooperation.

He further confirmed that Jordan will not return to partial or comprehensive closures.
