    The government announcement refers to two total deaths in 2015 with one being in the recent cluster of 6: "..virus this year reached 6 of them died.." This case is identified as:

    #1526 - Age 56, hospitalized, Jordan.

    I have checked the WHO DONs for this year and find no other coronavirus MERS death mentioned for Jordan for 2015.

    Hopefully WHO will issue an update soon about this situation.
