If the vape does not really have the coast in Jordan, the country seems today to tighten a little more its legislation by prohibiting its population from smoking cigarettes, using hookahs or vape in closed public spaces.
We all remember the religious apologies put forward to try to ban vaping in Jordan. Well today it is the coronavirus (Covid-19) which pushes the government of the country to prohibit its population from smoking cigarettes or from using vaping products in enclosed public spaces. As a reminder, Jordan has one of the highest smoking rates in the world.
« In order to protect the health and safety of our citizens, especially in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences, any act of smoking (cigarettes, vaping, hookahs) is prohibited in enclosed public spaces", Announced the ministry of Health in a statement published Wednesday.
The kingdom of Jordan has banned smoking cigarettes in public places since 2008, but the ban on vaping and especially hookah, which is very popular in the country is a first.
