A member of the National Committee for Epidemiology, Dr. Saeed Jaradat, said that Corona virus infection is not transmitted alone, “but we are the ones who transmit the virus,” noting the need to implement health protocols to end the current epidemic wave.

And Jaradat indicated in press statements, this evening, Wednesday, that the “delta” mutant is the dominant one and is responsible for 99% of Corona’s injuries in Jordan currently, pointing out that about 70,000 active Corona cases in the country are infected with the “delta” mutant.

He pointed to fears of the new mutant “Omicron” due to its rapid spread, stressing that the health system is actively seeking to contain the new mutant and work to accurately investigate its spread, in order to avoid entering Jordan with a new wave of the “Omicron” mutant and prevent its overlap with the “Delta” mutant.

Jaradat expected that the “Omicron” mutant will prevail in the world during the next two months, to overshadow the previous mutant in terms of the number of injuries recorded in it, “due to the speed of its transmission, which is considered the highest among the Corona mutant,” pointing to a lower severity in “Omicron” injuries.

As director of the Princess Haya Center for Biotechnology at the University of Science and Technology, he indicated that the center’s main tasks are to monitor the entry of any new strains of the Corona virus into Jordan and follow up on any local strains or mutants of the virus.

Jaradat pointed out that the center works continuously within an integrated government system between laboratories, whether in the private, public or university sectors.

He stressed that the third (current) epidemic wave of the Corona pandemic has begun to recede.
