With supermarkets closed and a nationwide curfew in effect, Jordan will launch a doorstep delivery service to feed its millions of citizens ordered to stay indoors. 

Beginning Tuesday, residents will be delivered basic supplies, such as bread, water and medicine. Municipalities, water companies and large businesses that normally deliver to local businesses will be making the deliveries, said Minister of State for Media Affairs Amjad Adaile.
