The ministry continued to urge people to adhere to the precautionary measures implemented in order to slow the spread of the virus.

“The ministry urges everyone to adhere strictly to social and physical distancing instructions issued by the Supreme Committee and the MOH, as well as staying at home and not going out unless necessary,” the ministry said in a statement.


Ramadan mass gatherings were banned in Oman last week as a precautionary measure. This decision, made by the country’s Supreme Committee for dealing with COVID-19, was in addition to the extension of the lockdown in its capital Muscat until May 8, as coronavirus cases in the country continue to rise.
