Muscat: The Supreme Committee in charge of examining a mechanism for dealing with developments resulting from the spread of the Corona virus (Covid-19) decided yesterday, Saturday, June 19, 2021, to prevent the movement of individuals and vehicles and to close all public places and commercial activities (while allowing home delivery) from 8 pm until 4 am, starting from today, June 20, 2021 until further notice.

Oman on Sunday reported more than 80 Covid deaths in 72 hours with 5320 new cases
