Oman on Friday banned the use of national identity cards for Omani nationals and GCC citizens to enter and exit the country as a precautionary measure to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Iran has the highest death toll from the flu-like virus outside of China at 43, although World Health Organization (WHO) experts say the outbreak in the country could be worse than is currently known.

The rapid spread of the coronavirus has fueled fears of a pandemic, with multiple countries reporting their first cases this week as the WHO raised its global risk alert to “very high.”
