Oman’s Supreme Committee Live: arrival of Covid vaccines does not mean end of epidemic

Muscat: The 21st Press Conference of the Supreme Committee on Covid-19 , 14th January 2020


H.E Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Saeedi – Minister of Health, member of the Supreme Committee

The arrival of vaccination does not mean the end of the epidemic

We hope that we do not see the casualty figures escalate again.

Unfortunately, we noticed a carelessness in adhering to the precautionary measures

Our commitment to precautionary measures against the Coronavirus means that we adhere to preventive measures such as wearing a mask and continuous hand sterilization.

Wearing a mask protects you and others from the risk of exposure to Corona virus, and reflects your concern for public safety.

The total number of vaccinated people in the Sultanate reached 22749. Total vaccination coverage rate for target groups is 82%.

Some hesitated not to take the vaccine, which is a legitimate hesitation, but it is not based on scientific information, but is related to rumors and false information.

Vaccination is not compulsory but optional for everyone.

There is no scientific evidence that the vaccinated person is not a carrier of the disease.

The decisions of the Supreme Committee are still in effect in terms of following the preventive and precautionary measures.

The fine for not returning the tracking bracelet 1000 OMR.

The epidemiological situation around the world is very worrying, and we do not recommend travel unless absolutely necessary

There is continuous communication with those concerned with the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs on the issue of mosques, but we stress that gatherings in the absence of distancing and precautionary requirements are still prohibited at the present time.
