The UN refugee agency confirmed two coronavirus cases in the Azraq camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan, home to more than 40,000 people who have fled their country’s civil war.

They are the first infections to be detected among Syrians living in refugee camps in Jordan.

The UNHCR said the two patients were transferred to quarantine facilities after testing positive late Monday, and their neighbors have been isolated as more testing is carried out.

UNHCR spokesman Mohammad Hawari said the two patients were transferred to an isolation center on the Dead Sea.

Those who were living with them, as well as their neighbors, were moved to an “isolation zone” inside the camp, and everyone who had contact with them is being tested.
