40 percent of coronavirus cases in Jordan are Omicron: Hijjawi – Roya News English

Member of the National Committee for Combating Epidemics and Communicable Diseases, Dr. Bassam Hijjawi, said Friday that Omicron infections now constitute 40 percent of all coronavirus infections in Jordan. 

Hijjawi added that the Omicron mutant has proven to be the fastest spreading, but the symptoms of infection  are considered mild compared to other mutants.

He pointed out that the government resorted to administering third doses to increase community immunity and limit the spread of the virus during the third and fourth wave.
