AMMAN, March 10 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Tuesday banned the entry of passengers from Germany, Spain, France, Syria and Lebanon to curb the spread of the COVID-19.

Jordanians are also prohibited from travelling to the five countries, said Health Minister Saad Jaber at a press conference in the capital Amman.

"We have also decided to close maritime borders with Egypt and reduce the flights from Egypt by 50 percent," he noted.

"The border crossings with Iraq and Palestine are closed for passengers and only trucks will be allowed," Jaber said.

No decisions have been made yet to suspend studies at schools and universities, the minister added.
