The student, Dayang Nuryoul Naqibah binti Haji Nooradin said she is staying at home as part of a lockdown ordered by the Jordanian government. The five students in Amman have been in contact with Brunei Darussalam's embassy and made video calls for updates of the situation, including on new orders from the Jordanian government. Since learning about the case in Brunei on the 2nd of March, they try to keep up to date with what is taking place and follow the Brunei Darussalam government's instructions and advice from the embassy.
