Jordan’s government is to impose a 24-hour lockdown on the capital Amman and the city of al-Zarqa on Friday in a return of the strict measures it credits with containing the virus earlier this year.

The “comprehensive lockdown” aims at slowing down the spread of the virus and allowing medical teams to test as many suspected cases as possible, government spokesman Amjad al-Adaileh said.

All businesses will be closed and no one will be allowed to leave their houses for 24 hours, except for a few essential workers.
