UN official commends Jordan's handling of COVID-19 pandemic


The repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic 'go well beyond the health factor to affect secondary, yet critical, aspects of people's lives', said UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Jordan Anders Pedersen.

In an interview with The Jordan Times, Pedersen said that 'if we solely look at the health factor, I think Jordan is relatively one of the safest countries to be right now. Comparatively speaking, and despite rising case numbers, the government has done a good job in maintaining low case numbers without a high number of deaths'.
