Corona Virus-2019 Disease

Awareness and commitment to the principles of public safety, as well as sourcing facts from credible sources, are the safest ways to curtail the spread of COVID-19 disease.

Coronaviruses are a large species of viruses that cause different diseases, ranging from colds to more severe diseases. Such viruses are zoonotic; meaning that they transmitted between animals and humans, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). The Coronavirus is a new strain that has not been previously discovered in humans.

The common symptoms of coronavirus infection include respiratory problems, fever, cough and dyspnea (shortness of breath). In more severe cases, the virus may cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), kidney failure, and even death.

The Ministry of Health in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan launched an official website to provide reliable information about COVID-19 from a standardized source.

The website aims to disseminate awareness and care within all groups of society by providing information about the virus, how is spread, its signs and symptoms, and methods of prevention, as well as the procedures in cases of suspected COVID-19 infection and reducing its risk.

We need sufficient levels of awareness and each person should take responsibility to counteract rumors in relation to the COVID-19 to protect our country.

The information on this website will be updated continuously according to local and international developments.
