Jordan’s approach in managing coronavirus crisis

Mar 30,2020 - Last updated at Mar 30,2020

Jordan has adopted a proactive approach in its management of the coronavirus crisis, as it closed the country’s borders, controlled entry and imposed a quarantine for all arrivals in the most beautiful hotels of the Dead Sea, Amman and Aqaba. The government has also provided travellers quarantined in hotels with the best services and suitable conditions without any discrimination between Jordanians and other nationalities.

Some people argue that if a quarantine imposed from the beginning of March, we may not have any cases of coronavirus infection, or at least it will be very limited.

Even though of that, Jordan is one of the leading countries in taking precautionary and preventive measures regarding all arrivals to the Kingdom.

Once a case of coronavirus was confirmed, the government started to take preventive measures in the Kingdom and that reached the curfew.

A curfew has been applied to the entire kingdom with the opportunity for citizens and residents to purchase basic goods within specific hours and within appropriate health conditions.

Purchasing behaviour of citizens reflects a healthy and civilised healthy awareness, with few exceptions do not constitute a significant percentage.

With the noticeable number of cases of the coronavirus disease in the governorate of Irbid, a healthy insulation was applied to it in addition to applying the same to specific areas in the governorate and epidemiological research teams started survey processes.

Medical and therapeutic work was done by hospital specialists, accompanied by an official media that transmits the latest developments and the number of cases affected by the disease with the utmost transparency and clarity.

Jordan has dealt with the coronavirus in all its dimensions, which represented a wonderful successful approach and model in managing the crisis.

This unique management model was appreciated by all internally and externally and at the level of countries, the media, specialised centers and people.

In Jordan, everyone; institutions, individuals and citizens, are keen to provide support and assistance. The national effort is coordinated, organised and in the same direction targeting shared goals.

The citizens formed a very positive moral support that motivated the efforts of officials and institutions.

In the armed forces and the security institutions, you do not differentiate between the commander and the soldiers. Everyone has taken the behaviour of collective work with team spirit and dealt with every need or assistance with the utmost kindness and decency.

Jordan focuses on achieving a balance between protecting people and continuing the country's economic life. Balancing short-term goals with long-term goals, with priority given to protecting people's health.

This unique model really deserves to be documented and taught in the most prestigious universities as a true success story for a small country, heavily suffering from a scarcity of resources.

This is Jordan, which we, indeed, have the right to be proud of. Our leader is inspiring and brave, and our people have a mission to deliver the best for the benefit of our country to be a permanent address for success and achievement.
