AMMAN (AA) - Jordan will impose a 48-hour nationwide lockdown because of the novel coronavirus pandemic beginning Thursday at midnight, according to governmental sources.

A limited number of workers, including medical staff, will be exempt from the restrictions, spokesman Emced al-Adayile told reporters.

The number of cases rose to 358 in Jordan after five additional infections were recorded, along with 150 recoveries, according to Health Minister Saad Jaber.
