Corona pandemic .. Jordan records the first two cases of Omicron,...
Today, Friday, the Jordanian Ministry of Health announced the registration of the first two cases of the “Omicron” strain of Corona virus in the Kingdom, while Morocco extended the suspension of direct flights for fear of the spread of the new mutant.

The ministry explained that the first case belongs to a Jordanian person coming from South Africa, while the other case belongs to a Jordanian citizen who was not registered to have traveled recently outside Jordan, and the concerned authorities are conducting an epidemiological investigation to find out the details of this injury.

The World Health Organization says it has evidence that the symptoms of the omicron are less severe than those of the delta mutant.

Comments and justifications

This comes as the Moroccan authorities extended yesterday, Thursday, until December 31, “at the very least,” the decision to suspend air and sea flights to and from the Kingdom, with the aim of combating the Covid-19 pandemic.

She added that flights that will be allocated to return citizens from abroad will be excluded from this decision, provided that they obtain prior approvals.

And the Kingdom’s air borders have been closed since last November 29, due to the rapid transmission of the new mutated version of the Corona virus, Omicron, and the resurgence of the pandemic in Europe.

These measures came “to preserve Morocco’s achievements in combating the pandemic,” Minister of Health Khaled Ait Taleb announced during a press conference yesterday, Thursday.

In response to this decision, a number of hotel owners, restaurants and tourist resorts expressed their disappointment at the extension of the border closure during the end of the year holidays, while the authorities stress that this measure remains necessary to stave off the risk of the outbreak of the Corona epidemic and its new mutator.

Law and Procedure

In Europe, today, Friday, the German Parliament adopted a bill obligating medical workers to obtain a vaccine against “Covid-19”, in a first step before expanding the imposition of vaccination expected at the beginning of next year to include the entire population.

The bill – which aims to protect vulnerable groups in particular – was approved by a large majority in the Bundestag, where the Social Democrats, environmentalists and liberals have a majority, and the bill was approved by 571 deputies against 80 who opposed it.

Thus, all those who work in hospitals, nursing homes or other care and treatment centers and ambulance services must receive the vaccine.

The bill states that health professions have a “special responsibility”, as they are “in close and intense contact with groups of people at high risk of serious or fatal disease.”

The workers concerned were given until March 15, 2022, to prove that they were fully vaccinated, or else they would not be able to continue working.

Thus, Germany joins other European countries such as France, Italy, Greece and Britain that have imposed vaccination on nursing staff.

Germany plans to go further, as the new Social Democratic chancellor, Olaf Scholz, plans to ask parliament to vote by the end of the year to impose vaccination to take effect next February or March.

Numbers and outcome

The figures indicate that the Corona virus has caused the death of at least 5 million and about 287,000 people in the world since the World Health Organization office in China announced the emergence of the virus at the end of December 2019, according to a census conducted by Agence France-Presse based on official sources today. Friday.

At least 267,883,990 people have been confirmed infected with the virus since its appearance, and the vast majority of those infected have recovered, although some continue to feel symptoms after weeks or even months.

The World Health Organization (considering the high death rate directly or indirectly related to Covid-19) considers that the outcome of the epidemic may be two or three times greater than the officially announced outcome.

A large proportion of cases that are less serious or that do not show symptoms remain undetected despite the intensification of examinations in a large number of countries.
