Hmeisat said that parts of the area, commonly known as the Corniche, was damaged because it was extensively used to isolate suspected COVID patients at the height of the pandemic.

“We hope that the Corniche will be rehabilitated and ready before the end of the year, and available to investors wishing to invest in it, as there are many investors waiting for it to reopen again,” he said.

Hmeisat added that the site was ready in March 2020, but investing in it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as it was damaged as a result of turning it into a sanitary isolation area. Now, he added, the area needs comprehensive maintenance work, including lighting and sidewalks.

Hmeisat indicated that the Corniche area in the Dead Sea, which extends over 2.1km, was divided into different plots of land, in preparation for those who wish to invest in it, establishing tourist facilities there. He said that could include hotels, restaurants, hotel apartments and chalets.

An area of 7,000sq.m. is designated for a hospital.
