Health Minister Saad Jaber has decided to consider all expired health insurance cards as automatically renewed for an additional month, in line with the government's plan to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The decision also included medical exemptions for Jordanian patients with kidney failure, exemptions for dialysis and cancer patients from the Gaza Strip, and medicine dispensed through the approval of a technical committee.

In press statements he made earlier today, Minister Jaber indicated that the number of corona cases in Jordan will likely increase in the next two days, after which it will decrease gradually.

He stated that 34 people who are quarantined in the Dead Sea and Amman hotels are suspected of having the virus and the Ministry is awaiting the results of the tests.

"24 medical teams examine people quarantined in the hotels," the Minister said.

Jaber expected that there will be 100 people infected with the virus in Jordan.
