Jordan, Saudi Arabia continue cross-border traffic despite corona restrictions

Jordan, Saudi Arabia continue cross-border traffic despite corona restrictions

Jordan’s authorities confirmed that a cross-border transport of goods with Saudi Arabia continued without pauses despite the recently rolled-out restrictions due to the new coronavirus strain, ArabNews reported on Tuesday.

The transport across the frontier between Saudi Arabia and Jordan is functioning, as usual, said Jordan’s Land Transport Regulatory Commission Director Salah Lozi. On Monday, the official statement was released.

Mr Lozi added that the freight movement between the two neighbouring nations had not been impacted by a Saudi decision suspending entry to the country through land crossings.

The emergency Saudi measures, which were taken to protect public health after a more infectious strain of the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in a number of countries, excluded the transport of goods and supply chains from countries where the mutated virus had not appeared.
