In preparation for a COVID-19 outbreak in Jordan’s capital, MSF has reorganised Amman hospital for the possibility of it becoming a COVID-19 treatment centre. We are still providing care to the 170 patients from the reconstructive surgery program in the hospital. We have offered support to the Ministry of Health through inpatient care and material donations.
We have conducted an assessment in Zaatari refugee camp, and are preparing a case management facility in the camp in order to provide more support as needed.
In Irbid, our in-person mental health consultations have been suspended, but care is continuing remotely over the phone. MSF staff are also delivering medicines daily to patients with non-communicable diseases in both Irbid and Ramtha, where the strict curfew restricts their movement.
