Muscat: His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik presided over a meeting of the Council of Ministers at Al Baraka Palace on Tuesday.

At the outset of the meeting, His Majesty the Sultan gave thanks and praise to the Almighty Allah for the riches with which He endowed Oman and its noble people. His Majesty the Sultan also thanked the Almighty for the mercy He bestowed on humanity through the improvement of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

He prayed to Allah “to vest all in garments of health” and to have mercy on the departed souls of those who succumbed to the disease.

Then, His Majesty the Sultan commended the efforts undertaken by the Supreme Committee tasked with tackling developments resulting from Covid-19 pandemic. He lauded the committee’s good planning and mechanisms that, he said, helped curb the pandemic.

His Majesty the Sultan gave directives to end the mission of the committee and instructed the Ministry of Health to take appropriate measures to address the lingering disease in coordination with the authorities concerned.

In this context, His Majesty the Sultan expressed his deep appreciation for the self-denial shown by medical and paramedical teams, as well as all health workers and staff of other establishments (including civil, military and security establishments), public institutions, private sector establishments and agencies of the media.

His Majesty the Sultan valued the cooperation of citizens and residents and their prompt response to health instructions and precautionary measures to address the pandemic. He, in particular, praised citizens’ and residents’ “fortitude as they endured the “exceptional conditions”, noting that “this stance played a great role in the success of the disease containment procedures and in the stability of the health situation”.
