Muscat: The Supreme Committee has taken note of the considerable increase in number of deaths and the surge in cases of infection, particularly among Omani families as a result of increased social mingling and exchange of visits—as indicated by epidemiological investigation data.

While the committee expressed deep dismay at the increase, it urged all citizens and residents to exercise extreme care and caution, and to stick to the precautionary measures undertaken to halt the rise in infection and mortality cases.

The Committee also reviewed epidemiological data on Governorate of Dhofar and the Wilayat of Masirah and decided to continue the lockdown of the two areas till further notice.

The Committee also discussed the demands of citizens seeking travel abroad and agreed to facilitate their travel, on condition that they abide, on their return home, by existing precautionary procedures and any decisions/procedures that might be issued in future by the departments concerned.



The Supreme Committee tasked with tackling developments resulting from coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic yesterday held a meeting at the Interior Ministry under the chairmanship of Sayyid Hamoud bin Faisal Al Busaidi, Minister of Interior, to follow up updates on the pandemic and prevention measures set to curb the spread of the virus.
