Govt looking at relaxing Muttrah isolation: Supreme Committee

Muscat: The Minister of Health, Dr. Ahmed al Saeedi, on Thursday said that the government would consider withdrawing Muttrah wilayat’s isolation. He was addressing the media during the sixth e-press conference of the Supreme Committee on Covid-19.

“There is a significant decrease in Covid-19 cases in Muttrah, which is now under isolation . With the number of cases affected in Muttrah constantly decreasing, we will review withdrawing the wilayat’s isolation,” said the minister.

The minister also said a team is studying to reopen more commercial activities, but unfortunately, some visitors and workers were found to be adhering to the health guidelines at places where activities resumed last week.
