RAMALLAH, Tuesday, Dozens of Palestinians quarantined in Jordan returned home today with the end of their 14-day isolation period, according to Abeer Ramahi, from the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates.
She told WAFA that the first batch of 56 Palestinians out of 170 total have crossed the Jordan River bridge border point between Jordan and Palestine and the remaining will enter during the day.
Government spokesman Ibrahim Milhem said in his daily briefing today that Palestine and Jordan coordinated the opening of the border crossing between them to allow the return of Palestinians who spent a 14-day quarantine in Jordan.
After their arrival into the West Bank, said Ramahi, they will be examined in Jericho to make sure they are well and then they will be told to self-quarantine in their homes for 14 more days.
The Palestinians, along with some 5600 other people, were quarantined in 15 locations at the Dead Sea or Amman after their arrival in Jordan from abroad.
