House Speaker urges private sector to join anti-coronavirus effort

Speaker of the Lower House Atef Tarawneh on Monday called for ‘national solidarity’ by all state institutions, private and grassroots entities to protect the country and its citizens from the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a press statement, Tarawneh lauded steps taken by the government to curb the spread of the COVID-19, pointing out that it required support of a national campaign through donations by companies, the business community and the private sector.

He said that donations will be used to create additional fully-equipped quarantine centres to receive suspected cases.

Tarawneh called on the public to join forces and shun rumors, adding that the Kingdom is able to overcome the crisis.
