Coronavirus: Jordan announces curfew to slow virus spread

Published: Updated:

Jordan will impose a curfew early on Saturday to prevent people from moving except for emergencies to combat coronavirus, the government said.

The curfew across the country would start from 7 a.m. local time on Saturday until further notice said Amjad al-Adailah, government spokesman.

King Abdullah had enacted an emergency decree last Tuesday that gives the government sweeping powers invoked in times of war and calamities to enforce an army-imposed curfew and other measures.
