The Minister of Health, Firas Al-Hawari, said Monday, that government measures helped not to enter the wave of the mutated Omicron with Delta; As it happened in many countries in the world.

Al-Hawari added to “The Kingdom” that the procedure for ending the first semester of schools ahead of its time is to allow the wave of the Corona virus (Delta) mutant to decrease, and the transmission of the Omicron mutant is smoother.

He pointed out that the gradual opening of the sectors, and the intensification of the administration of the Corona vaccine, has a major role in crossing the summer period safely, as well as the start of the first semester in person.

He pointed out that what concerns the government is the return of school students in person, and accordingly a decision was taken to postpone the start of the second semester to February 20, 2022.

He called for more vaccinations to be given to students; To avoid infection with corona, he indicated that Omicron affects lower age groups than the previous mutant, and may double them in hospitals, saying, “We have to protect our children (students), and this is through vaccinations, and avoiding exposure to the virus significantly.”

He pointed out that 96% of those who died due to corona in Jordan during the past 30 days, did not meet the two doses of corona.

Al-Hawari suggested that the peak number of HIV infections would be in the first or second week of February.

He said that the significant increase in the number of injuries will raise hospital admissions rates, adding that it may be less than the hospital admissions rates in the Delta wave, but it will be important.

He indicated that the ministry has developed a plan to absorb the incomes.
