Muscat: The Minister of Health spoke about lockdown at the Supreme Committee meeting regarding COVID-19 today.
The minister said, "We do not want to re-close the Sultanate’s airports to international flights. The issue was discussed at the Supreme Committee meeting yesterday. The decision to close the country will not be taken easily, and we hope that the process of closure and imposition of lockdown will not be carried out."
Speaking about airports the minister said, "The airports were not closed because they were easy to manage, travelers follow and conduct tests, unlike the land borders."
