The Supreme Committee in charge of examining the mechanism for dealing with developments resulting from the spread of the Coronavirus in the Sultanate of Oman said, Tuesday, that it has banned entry from ten countries for a period of 15 days to contain the spread of the virus, especially the mutated strains.
The countries include Sudan, Lebanon, South Africa, Brazil, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Ethiopia.
The decision also includes expatriates from other places if they had passed through any of those countries in the fourteen days prior to submitting an application to enter the Sultanate.
The committee said that exceptions are made for Omani citizens, diplomats, health workers and their families.
The committee indicated that the decision will be implemented from Thursday.
It should be noted that the number of injuries in the Sultanate has reached 140,000, of whom 133,000 have recovered, while 1,555 people have died so far.
About four weeks ago, Amman banned all events that include gatherings, and postponed the return of students to universities as part of the measures aimed at curbing the spread of the new Corona virus.
