Jordan to close border with Syria after spike in COVID-19 cases

AMMAN, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Jordan will close for a week its only land trade border crossing with Syria after a spike in COVID-19 cases coming from its northern neighbour, officials said on Wednesday.

They said the interior minister’s decision to close the main Jaber border crossing would come into effect on Thursday morning.
