This week, Jordan recorded a total of 20,980 new infections with the coronavirus, in addition to 134 deaths, constituting the worst epidemic week in terms of case numbers in five months. 

Prime Minister Dr. Bisher Al-Khasawneh has stressed the need to fully comply with the implementation of defense orders related to tightening control over individuals and institutions in the public and private sectors and to adhere to preventive and public safety measures in light of the high number of cases recorded in Jordan in recent days. 

He further stressed individual responsibility in ensuring that sectors remain open, and that Jordanian residents and citizens get vaccinated, including by taking a third booster dose.
