On Sunday, the Jordanian government decided to extend the night curfew and continue the procedures for preventing the holding of Friday prayers and Sunday masses and closing public parks, nightclubs and sports centers until mid-May, after recording record numbers for the number of cases of Coronavirus
“Prime Minister Bishr Al-Khasawneh decided to extend the night curfew hours, and a comprehensive curfew on Friday and the closed sectors, until May 15,” State Minister for Media Affairs and government spokesman Sakher Dudin said in a press conference.
And the night curfew starts from seven in the evening local time until six in the morning every day.
Dudin added, “The prime minister also decided to continue to work on the decision to close the facilities that were previously decided to be closed, until May 15th.”
On the tenth of this month, the government decided to ban the holding of Friday prayers and Sunday masses, and to close public parks, nightclubs, bars, discos, indoor swimming pools, centers, academies, sports clubs, oriental baths and equestrian clubs.
He said that the government will take this week “mitigating and stimulating measures for the economy,” without further details.
According to Dudin, these measures were taken due to the increase in the number of injuries and deaths during the past weeks and “we have reached alarming levels due to the spread of this epidemic.”
