Ammon News - The World Bank said that the emergency response project to combat the spread of the Corona virus in Jordan, which was funded by the Bank, contributed to the purchase and receipt of 750,000 doses of Pfizer's anti-virus vaccines.

The project, whose implementation is expected to be completed on January 31, 2024, aims to prevent, detect and respond to the threat posed by the Corona pandemic and to strengthen local systems for public health preparedness, according to the bank's data.

The Bank approved the original project in April 2020, through a $20 million loan, and approved additional financing of $63 million on June 16, 2021.

The data showed that the project has spent 65.82% of the total amount of $83 million, with the original funding disbursed in full.

The data indicated that the project funded the costs of a mandatory quarantine for more than 5,300 people in late March 2020, as well as expanded case management capabilities to handle sharp rises in infections and cases in hospitals through the purchase of life-saving medical equipment for intensive care units at Al Bashir Hospital in Amman and 3 Field hospitals in Amman, Irbid, and Ma'an.
